Detailed Description

Mark a struct as a reference tag by inheriting from this.


A reference tag is used to identify an item in a DataBox that is a const reference to a sub-item of another item (such as a Variables or GlobalCache) in the DataBox

Derived Class Requires:

  • type alias base that is the simple tag from which the reference tag is derived
  • type alias parent_tag that is the tag for the item from which the reference item is retrieved
  • static function get that, given the item fetched by parent_tag, returns a const reference to the sub-item
  • type alias argument_tags that is tmpl::list<parent_tag>

A reference tag may optionally specify a static std::string name() method to override the default name produced by db::tag_name.

A reference tag should only be derived from a simple tag and db::ReferenceTag.


template <typename... Tags>

using type = tuples::TaggedTuple<Tags...>;

using argument_tags = tmpl::list<parent_tag>;
An associative container that is indexed by structs.
