Subject: Exceptions in Perl callbacks leak memory
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 584b
If a Perl callbacks throws an exception during a transformation, the libxslt transform context is leaked. This includes: * input callbacks * security callbacks * extenstion functions * extension elements Possible solutions: 1. Don't croak in the callback handlers but store the error in a global. Then 'transform' can check for an error and croak after the transform context and other data structures were freed. 2. Always create an XML::LibXSLT::TransformContext Perl object for transform contexts. Make these objects mortal and implement a DESTROY method that frees the context.
