I ran Intel Inspector XE 2013 analysis on a simple Quex lexer today and ran into a couple of internal memory leaks:

Converter_ICU.i:
28 me->from_handle = ucnv_open(FromCodingName, &me->status);

MemoryManager.i:
31 uint8_t result = (uint8_t)__QUEX_STD_malloc((size_t)ByteN);

Discussion

  • Checks for memory leaks are part of the regression test
    which is done before any release. Please, provide minimalist
    example. I can check with valgrind.

    Uconv has some issues. The conversation which I had in the
    frame of a bug report did not augment my trust in their
    software.
