class Referenced

Base class for reference counting.

A form of memory management is needed to prevent memory leaks when using MPC in Python via SWIG. This base class enables reference counting. Every reference increases the reference counter, every dereference decreases it. When the counter is decreased to 0, the object is deleted. Candidate, Module, MagneticField and Source inherit from this class
