Visitor pattern

на сайте с June 15, 2023 23:19
In object-oriented programming and software engineering, the visitor design pattern is a way of separating an algorithm from an object structure on which it operates. A practical result of this separation is the ability to add new operations to existing object structures without modifying the structures. It is one way to follow the open/closed principle. In essence, the visitor allows adding new virtual functions to a family of classes, without modifying the classes.
