Detailed Description

PrefixKeyVal is a KeyVal that searches a different KeyVal using modified keys.

This is convenient for reading keys grouped together with a common prefix. Consider the following code:

    sc::Ref<sc::KeyVal> keyval = new sc::PrefixKeyVal('A',original_keyval);
    int r = keyval->intvalue('x');
    


 This code will assign to r the value associated with 'x' in keyval. keyval will search for 'x' by searching for 'A::x' in original_keyval.

This class is important for implementing constructors that take KeyVal arguments. When an object is being constructed from a KeyVal, it may contain another object that must be constructed from a KeyVal. In order to let the sub-object read the correct keywords from the KeyVal, without knowledge of the containing objects keyword prefix, a PrefixKeyVal can be constructed. For example, the code

    class A: public DescribedClass {
       double f0_;
      public:
       A(const Ref<KeyVal> &keyval): f0_(keyval->doublevalue('f0')) {}
    }
    class B: public DescribedClass {
       double f1_;
       Ref<A> a_;
      public:
       B(const Ref<KeyVal> &keyval):
         f1_(keyval->doublevalue('f1')),
         a_(new PrefixKeyVal(keyval,'a'))
       {}
    };


 can be used to read ParsedKeyVal input that looks like 

    b<B>: (
      f1 = 1.0
      a<A>: (
        f0 = 2.0
      )
    )
