Hi, i have experienced memory leaks , with the jpeg library from intel, does anyone knows why ?
it leaks the filename pointer.


Is it making a copy of the filename you pass in, or is it you who are forgetting to free the filename once the JPEG routines return?

The JPEG library is probably written so that you can pass string literals as filenames, which should NOT be freed by the library.

OK, solved i was using a std::string pointer, and by the way i would like to know why jpeg are useless on windows , thought they were the standard compression format.

Depends. What are you using it for?

Jpegs use lossy compression bytheway. There are formats that use lossless compression. Are you sure jpeg is the best format for your needs?
