Hey,

I need to recompile a script during runtime which has a shared class or shared function. Angelscript doesn't discard those in DiscardModule(). How do I get rid of them at runtime so I can recompile?

The shared classes/functions are kept alive until they are no longer used in any code. For this reason they can be difficult to recompile.

 

Not only must you discard all the modules that use the shared entities, but you must also run the garbage collector in a full iteration to make sure the GC has been able to clean up potential circular references between them.
