Filter SDK/Env SaveString

Jump to: navigation, search

env->SaveString is given to allow users to pass strings to AVSValue, and ensure that they are being deallocated on unload.

An Example:

     fnpluginnew = new char[string_len];
     strcpy(fnpluginnew, fnplugin.AsString());
     strcat(fnpluginnew, " ");
     strcat(fnpluginnew, name);
     env->SetGlobalVar("$PluginFunctions$", AVSValue(env->SaveString(fnpluginnew, string_len)));
     // Since fnpluginnew has now been saved it can safely be deleted.
     delete[] fnpluginnew;

But you must still remember that these strings are not deallocated until the filter is unloaded. So in general if you don't want your filter to be allocating more memory on each load, try avoiding using non-const strings.
