virtual ~strstreambuf();

Destroys a std::strstreambuf object. if the object is managing a dynamically-allocated buffer (the buffer state is "allocated") and if the object is not frozen, then deallocates the buffer using the deallocation function provided at construction or delete[] if none was provided.

[edit] Parameters

(none0

[edit] Notes

This destructor is typically called by the destructor of std::strstream

If str() was called on a dynamic strstream and freeze(false) was not called after that, this destructor leaks memory.

[edit] Example

#include <strstream>
#include <iostream>
 
void* my_alloc(size_t n)
{
    std::cout << "my_alloc(" << n << ") called\n";
    return new char[n];
}
 
void my_free(void* p)
{
    std::cout << "my_free() called\n";
    delete[] (char*)p;
}
 
int main()
{
    {
        std::strstreambuf buf(my_alloc, my_free);
        std::ostream s(&buf);
        s << 1.23;
        std::cout << buf.str() << '\n';
        buf.freeze(false);
    } // destructor called here, buffer deallocated
 
    {
        std::strstreambuf buf(my_alloc, my_free);
        std::ostream s(&buf);
        s << 1.23;
        std::cout << buf.str() << '\n';
//        buf.freeze(false);
    } // destructor called here, memory leak!
}

Output:

my_alloc(4096) called
1.23
my_free() called
my_alloc(4096) called
1.23
