Thanks for your reply, after putting together an example, I found that my
problem is rather a symptom.
Look at this code:
cString str=cString("hello world");
void func(cString string)
int main(int argc, char* argv)
The problem is that str and string in func point to the same buffer. And
even without assinging string to str, the second printf receives a freed
buffer, for cString's destructor will be called for string when func
Then apart from dealing with the same-buffer thing, shouldn't cString have a
copy constructor to take care of duplicating the buffer for this case? Or
is cString intended to be passed by reference only?
Thanks for comments
