Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

might want to get it out of the docs, then: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Programming/Assets/AsyncLoading/index.html refers to it as a good place to put the FStreamableManager

In the link I've provided, there was a very good reason to avoid Singleton. You can do it if you want to. Just remember that documentation is written by humans and they may have their established ways of doing things and personal preferences
