Plugins and memory leaks...

7 posts in this topic

The plugins seems to leak memory (Or are there a reason for that?)

For example If I call the following function in a loop:

$handle = PluginOpen("example.dll")

for $x = 1 to 2500000
$retval = PluginAdd("10", "50") 
next
PluginClose($handle)

Everytime the loop repeats the used memory will increase, a few hundred k's.

Another thing... Do I need to free small buffers if I have allocated like this:

unsigned char pBuffer[32768];

Should I use "AU3_FreeString()" to free this or will that be done automatically then the plugin is finished?

Great!

...and how about the other memory used? (My second question above).

I am experiencing this behaviour with AutoIt 3.3.8.1 and the plugin SDK from 09-Jun-2009 on both 32 and 64 bit platforms.

After five million function calls (that simply return) my app is using 400MB+

Is there a later SDK I should be using?
