List, Maybe I'm just not that bright, but I have a question regarding the following:
man 3 getenv <snip> "Successive calls to setenv() or putenv() assigning a differently sized value to the same name will result in a memory leak. The FreeBSD seman- tics for these functions (namely, that the contents of value are copied and that old values remain accessible indefinitely) make this bug unavoidable. Future versions may eliminate one or both of these semantic guarantees in order to fix the bug." </snip> This is a memory leak within the process which calls sentenv() or putenv(), not a memory leak in the kernel, right? Like, if I called putenv() a in a loop and then exited the process, the kernel will reclaim that cluster-fuck of lost allocated memory, right? (If it's a kernel leak that would be super retarded as any process could affectively starve the kernel of memory. ) So it's a userland leak right? Anybody? -Modulok- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
