According to the zlib API documentation in include/linux/zlib.h 301 extern int zlib_deflateEnd (z_streamp strm); 302 /* 303 All dynamically allocated data structures for this stream are freed. 304 This function discards any unprocessed input and does not flush any 305 pending output. 306 307 deflateEnd returns Z_OK if success, Z_STREAM_ERROR if the 308 stream state was inconsistent, Z_DATA_ERROR if the stream was freed 309 prematurely (some input or output was discarded). In the error case, 310 msg may be set but then points to a static string (which must not be 311 deallocated). 312 */ The first paragraph says it could free data, so the call needs to be there. The return value could have some meaning as it could point out to some inconsistency in zlib internal state but just deleting is IMO wrong.
