I find it unlikely. help?> takebuf_string search: takebuf_string takebuf_string(b::IOBuffer) Obtain the contents of an IOBuffer as a string, without copying. Afterwards, the IOBuffer is reset to its initial state. reset means they take action, and could have closed if needed; IOBuffer is an in-memory thing, even if freeing memory was the issue, then garbage collection should take care of that. Since this thread was necromanced: @Karpinski: "The takebuf_string function really needs a new name." I do not see clearly that that has happened, shouldn't help?> takebuf_string show then? What would be a good name? Changing and/or documenting the above could be an "up-for-grabs" issue. New function would just call the old function..
