memory leaks in sf::window?
« on: July 14, 2011, 11:23:45 pm »
I re-compiled sfml-system and sfml-window through VS2010

simple test program
Code: [Select]

//////// Used to check memory leaks
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include "LeakCheck.h"
    #undef THIS_FILE
    static char THIS_FILE[] = __FILE__;

#include <SFML/Window.hpp>

#pragma comment( lib, "sfml-system-d" )
#pragma comment( lib, "sfml-window-d" )

int main()
{
    #ifdef _DEBUG
        _CrtSetDbgFlag ( _CRTDBG_ALLOC_MEM_DF | _CRTDBG_LEAK_CHECK_DF );
        _CrtDumpMemoryLeaks();
    #endif

    sf::Window App;

    return 0;
}


and here is my output :
Code: [Select]

        }

#endif


What's going on? I'm looking at the source for sf::Window() and it's an empty constructor, so what could be causing this so-called memory leak?

The problem has already occurred -- probably, the visual studio leak detector is not reliable or you are using it wrong. I don't know, I only trust my self-written memory control tool :P

With it, I can't reconstruct your leaks. Which SFML version are you using (if SFML 2, which revision)?

I'm using 1.6 and I re-compiled it through VS2010.

The leaks aren't the same as the one in that old thread (it's actually significantly larger), but according to your old post you're saying that it could just be that at the time of the reporting the memory wasn't freed yet but eventually is?

Yes.

I am not sure about 1.6 however, it has been a long time since I used it. You could try with SFML 2, it contains many improvements and bugfixes anyway.

You're dumping memory leaks before the end of the program, so of course there will still be allocated memory. Not to mention that function is just broken in general. Use a proper detector like Valgrind or Rational Purify if you're really worried about it.
