Name

msys.cast — Cast an object to the specified class

Synopsis

msys.cast(object, classnamestring);

object: mixed
classnamestring: string

Description

Forces object to be re-interpreted as the specified class. This is provided primarily to map void object proxies to the correct underlying class type. This will result in crashes if the cast is used incorrectly; use with caution.

Because this function is in the msys namespace, an explicit require is not necessary.
