could anyone explain me the use of GSAutoreleasedMemory please?
GSAutoreleasedMemory is a private class whose instances are used to
wrap an area of memory on the heap which is to be freed when the
enclosing autorelease pool is deallocated. It should be impossible
for this to be leaked unless you are running without an autorelease
pool... in which case you should get lots of warning messages. Are
you sure you are not misinterpreting things?
No. Of course I'm not sure :-)
However I'm also loosing an autoreleased local NSString. So I've a
problem with AutorelasePools. However I do not get any "autorelease
called without pool...." message. Perhaps I'm getting an exception in a
background thread, which is not caught. In such a case the corresponding
pool wouldn't be released. However the thread itself would exit. Could
this cause the problem?
