fn() arrayClearSpace
Destroys the begin of an array and keeps the rest.

Defined in <seqan/basic.h>
Signature void arrayClearSpace(arrBegin, arrLength, keepFrom, moveTo);


arrBegin Pointer to the first element of the array.
keepFrom Offset of the first object that will be kept.
arrLength Length of the array.
moveTo Offset the first kept object will get at the end of the function.

Detailed Description

The objects arr[keep_from] to arr[arr_length-1] are moved to the area beginning at positions move_to. All objects in arr[0] to arr[keep_from-1] are destroyed. After this function, the first move_to positions of the array are free and dont contain objects.

The array must have at least enough space to store arr_length + move_to - keep_from objects.

The objects from arr[0] to arr[array_length-1] have to be initialized/constructed, arrays beyond arr[array_length-1] are assumed not to be constructed. If this assumption is violated, memory might leak.
