Hi, I've together a very simple OpenGL app using GLUT on Linux that draws a few circles and bounces them around the screen. Everything works fine if I neglect to free the memory for the circles vertices using delete [] vertices when I close the app. If I DO do this, the app crashes with the following error message:
*** glibc detected *** ./OpenGL_Demo_3: double free or corruption (!prev): 0x080d01c0 ***

At the start of the app, I do something like this:
Vertices = new Vectormath::Aos::Vector3[Vertex_Count];
// Fill Vertices with data
// Run app
// ...
// Cleanup - crash if I DO do this
delete [] Vertices;

I'm using Sony's vector math library, although I don't think its anything to do with the library as I experienced the same problem using my own Vertex structure. Does anybody have any suggestions? I've looked at many of the OpenGL Red Books sample apps, and I can't see that I've neglected anything. In my other programs that don't use OpenGL, creating/deleting dynamic memory works fine e.g. int* list = new int[100]; delete [] list; Thanks,

From the error dump, "double free" normally occurs if, well, the memory is freed twice. Perhaps the compiler has integrated an automatic variable freing in the scope of the main routine. That points at a wrong type specification of "Variable"?! Or else your own clean-up code before that delete[] already frees the array, but I assume you've already excluded that possibility. Howeer, the snippet
  Vertices = new Vectormath::Aos::Vector3[Vertex_Count];
doesn't show any type of the variable "Vertices". To clarify, please post some more of the actual code.

Hi,

Here is the header file for Circle_Class:


#pragma once
#include <math.h>
#include <GL/gl.h>
#include <QtDebug>
#include <vectormath/scalar/cpp/vectormath_aos.h>

class Circle_Class

public:
Circle_Class(float in_Radius = 50.0);
~Circle_Class(void);

float Radius(void) const;

void set_Position(const Vectormath::Aos::Vector3& in_Position);
const Vectormath::Aos::Vector3& Position(void) const;

void set_Direction(const Vectormath::Aos::Vector3& in_Direction);
const Vectormath::Aos::Vector3& Direction(void) const;

void set_Velocity(float in_Units_Per_Second);
float Velocity(void) const;

void Update(float in_Elapsed_Time_Seconds);

void Draw(void) const;
private:
void Random_Direction(Vectormath::Aos::Vector3& out_Direction) const;

float m_Radius;
float m_Velocity;
int m_Vertex_Count;
float m_PI;
float m_Radians_Per_Deg;
Vectormath::Aos::Vector3* m_Vertices;
Vectormath::Aos::Vector3 m_Position;
Vectormath::Aos::Vector3 m_Direction;
GLfloat m_Color[4];
};



Here is the cpp file for Circle_Class


#include "Circle_Class.h"

Circle_Class::Circle_Class(float in_Radius):
m_Radius(in_Radius),
m_Velocity(0.0f),
m_Vertex_Count(128),

float l_Angle_Deg = 360.0f / ((float) m_Vertex_Count);
for (int i = 0; i < m_Vertex_Count; ++i)

float q = ((float) i) * l_Angle_Deg;

}

Circle_Class::~Circle_Class(void)

//Why does this create errors??
delete [] m_Vertices;

float Circle_Class::Radius(void) const
{
return m_Radius;
}

void Circle_Class::set_Position(const Vectormath::Aos::Vector3& in_Position)
{
m_Position = in_Position;
}

const Vectormath::Aos::Vector3& Circle_Class::Position(void) const
{
return m_Position;
}

void Circle_Class::set_Direction(const Vectormath::Aos::Vector3& in_Direction)
{

m_Direction = Vectormath::Aos::normalize(m_Direction);
}

const Vectormath::Aos::Vector3& Circle_Class::Direction(void) const
{
return m_Direction;
}

void Circle_Class::set_Velocity(float in_Units_Per_Second)
{
m_Velocity = in_Units_Per_Second;
}

float Circle_Class::Velocity(void) const
{
return m_Velocity;
}

void Circle_Class::Update(float in_Elapsed_Time_Seconds)
{
Vectormath::Aos::Vector3 l_Vector_3(m_Direction);
l_Vector_3 *= (m_Velocity * in_Elapsed_Time_Seconds);
m_Position += l_Vector_3;
}

void Circle_Class::Draw(void) const
{


glColor3f(m_Color[0], m_Color[1], m_Color[2]);



glBegin(GL_POLYGON);
for (int i = 0; i < m_Vertex_Count; ++i)
{
float x = m_Vertices.getX() + m_Position.getX();
float y = m_Vertices.getY() + m_Position.getY();

glVertex2f(x, y);
}
glEnd();
}

void Circle_Class::Random_Direction(Vectormath::Aos::Vector3& out_Direction) const
{
float l_Angle_Deg = Random_Integer(0, 359);
Vectormath::Aos::Matrix3 l_Matrix = Vectormath::Aos::Matrix3::rotationZ(l_Angle_Deg * m_Radians_Per_Deg);
Vectormath::Aos::Vector3 l_Vector_3(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);
l_Vector_3 = l_Matrix * l_Vector_3;
out_Direction = Vectormath::Aos::normalize(l_Vector_3);
}



So, each Circle_Class has its own set of vertices. The memory is allocated when the Circle_Class is created, and freed when the circle is destroyed.

Thanks

OK - problem solved. I appended several Circles to a QList, and because I neglected to write a copy constructor for the Circle class, each Circles m_Vertices pointer pointed to the same array. Hence, the double free error.

      For those that don't know me. I am the individual who's two videos are listed here under setup for https://wiki.libsdl.org/Tutorials
      I also run grhmedia.com where I host the projects and code for the tutorials I have online.
      Recently, I received a notice from youtube they will be implementing their new policy in protecting video content as of which I won't be monetized till I meat there required number of viewers and views each month.

      Frankly, I'm pretty sick of youtube. I put up a video and someone else learns from it and puts up another video and because of the way youtube does their placement they end up with more views.
      Even guys that clearly post false information such as one individual who said GLEW 2.0 was broken because he didn't know how to compile it. He in short didn't know how to modify the script he used because he didn't understand make files and how the requirements of the compiler and library changes needed some different flags.

      At the end of the month when they implement this I will take down the content and host on my own server purely and it will be a paid system and or patreon. 

      I get my videos may be a bit dry, I generally figure people are there to learn how to do something and I rather not waste their time. 
      I used to also help people for free even those coming from the other videos. That won't be the case any more. I used to just take anyone emails and work with them my email is posted on the site.

      I don't expect to get the required number of subscribers in that time or increased views. Even if I did well it wouldn't take care of each reoccurring month.
      I figure this is simpler and I don't plan on putting some sort of exorbitant fee for a monthly subscription or the like.
      I was thinking on the lines of a few dollars 1,2, and 3 and the larger subscription gets you assistance with the content in the tutorials if needed that month.
      Maybe another fee if it is related but not directly in the content. 
      The fees would serve to cut down on the number of people who ask for help and maybe encourage some of the people to actually pay attention to what is said rather than do their own thing. That actually turns out to be 90% of the issues. I spent 6 hours helping one individual last week I must have asked him 20 times did you do exactly like I said in the video even pointed directly to the section. When he finally sent me a copy of the what he entered I knew then and there he had not. I circled it and I pointed out that wasn't what I said to do in the video. I didn't tell him what was wrong and how I knew that way he would go back and actually follow what it said to do. He then reported it worked. Yea, no kidding following directions works. But hey isn't alone and well its part of the learning process.

      So the point of this isn't to be a gripe session. I'm just looking for a bit of feed back. Do you think the fees are unreasonable?
      Should I keep the youtube channel and do just the fees with patreon or do you think locking the content to my site and require a subscription is an idea.

      I'm just looking at the fact it is unrealistic to think youtube/google will actually get stuff right or that youtube viewers will actually bother to start looking for more accurate videos.

OpenGL 4.6 integrates the functionality of numerous ARB and EXT extensions created by Khronos members AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA into core, including the capability to ingest SPIR-V™ shaders.
      SPIR-V is a Khronos-defined standard intermediate language for parallel compute and graphics, which enables content creators to simplify their shader authoring and management pipelines while providing significant source shading language flexibility. OpenGL 4.6 adds support for ingesting SPIR-V shaders to the core specification, guaranteeing that SPIR-V shaders will be widely supported by OpenGL implementations.
      OpenGL 4.6 adds the functionality of these ARB extensions to OpenGL’s core specification:
      GL_ARB_gl_spirv and GL_ARB_spirv_extensions to standardize SPIR-V support for OpenGL GL_ARB_indirect_parameters and GL_ARB_shader_draw_parameters for reducing the CPU overhead associated with rendering batches of geometry GL_ARB_pipeline_statistics_query and GL_ARB_transform_feedback_overflow_querystandardize OpenGL support for features available in Direct3D GL_ARB_texture_filter_anisotropic (based on GL_EXT_texture_filter_anisotropic) brings previously IP encumbered functionality into OpenGL to improve the visual quality of textured scenes GL_ARB_polygon_offset_clamp (based on GL_EXT_polygon_offset_clamp) suppresses a common visual artifact known as a “light leak” associated with rendering shadows GL_ARB_shader_atomic_counter_ops and GL_ARB_shader_group_vote add shader intrinsics supported by all desktop vendors to improve functionality and performance GL_KHR_no_error reduces driver overhead by allowing the application to indicate that it expects error-free operation so errors need not be generated In addition to the above features being added to OpenGL 4.6, the following are being released as extensions:
      GL_KHR_parallel_shader_compile allows applications to launch multiple shader compile threads to improve shader compile throughput WGL_ARB_create_context_no_error and GXL_ARB_create_context_no_error allow no error contexts to be created with WGL or GLX that support the GL_KHR_no_error extension “I’m proud to announce OpenGL 4.6 as the most feature-rich version of OpenGL yet. We've brought together the most popular, widely-supported extensions into a new core specification to give OpenGL developers and end users an improved baseline feature set. This includes resolving previous intellectual property roadblocks to bringing anisotropic texture filtering and polygon offset clamping into the core specification to enable widespread implementation and usage,” said Piers Daniell, chair of the OpenGL Working Group at Khronos. “The OpenGL working group will continue to respond to market needs and work with GPU vendors to ensure OpenGL remains a viable and evolving graphics API for all its customers and users across many vital industries.“
      The OpenGL 4.6 specification can be found at https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php. The GLSL to SPIR-V compiler glslang has been updated with GLSL 4.60 support, and can be found at https://github.com/KhronosGroup/glslang.
      Sophisticated graphics applications will also benefit from a set of newly released extensions for both OpenGL and OpenGL ES to enable interoperability with Vulkan and Direct3D. These extensions are named:
      GL_EXT_memory_object GL_EXT_memory_object_fd GL_EXT_memory_object_win32 GL_EXT_semaphore GL_EXT_semaphore_fd GL_EXT_semaphore_win32 GL_EXT_win32_keyed_mutex They can be found at: https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php
      Industry Support for OpenGL 4.6
      “With OpenGL 4.6 our customers have an improved set of core features available on our full range of OpenGL 4.x capable GPUs. These features provide improved rendering quality, performance and functionality. As the graphics industry’s most popular API, we fully support OpenGL and will continue to work closely with the Khronos Group on the development of new OpenGL specifications and extensions for our customers. NVIDIA has released beta OpenGL 4.6 drivers today at https://developer.nvidia.com/opengl-driver so developers can use these new features right away,” said Bob Pette, vice president, Professional Graphics at NVIDIA.
      "OpenGL 4.6 will be the first OpenGL release where conformant open source implementations based on the Mesa project will be deliverable in a reasonable timeframe after release. The open sourcing of the OpenGL conformance test suite and ongoing work between Khronos and X.org will also allow for non-vendor led open source implementations to achieve conformance in the near future," said David Airlie, senior principal engineer at Red Hat, and developer on Mesa/X.org projects.

      Hi,
      I have an OpenGL application but without possibility to wite own shaders.
      I need to perform small VS modification - is possible to do it in an alternative way? Do we have apps or driver modifictions which will catch the shader sent to GPU and override it?
