Description Robin Morisset 2019-07-03 13:48:18 PDT
Most StructureElement, FunctionDeclaration and (especially) VariableDeclaration don't have a 'Semantic' field.
Using an Optional<Semantic> to represent this is a major memory waste, as Semantic is 56 bytes, so Optional<Semantic> is 64 bytes!
Putting one level of indirection through a unique_ptr thus saves 56 bytes for each VariableDeclaration (and FunctionDeclaration and StructureElement) that does not have a Semantic, at the low cost of one pointer dereference when accessing the field for those that have one.
