Ghoscript - For those developing Ghoscript code

Dear everyone,

 

It has been brought to my attention that Ghoscript 9.02 and 9.05 suffer from a leak which is not detected by any heap analyzer (Valgrind on Linux or the VMS Heap Analyzer). This causes the PGFL quota to decrease (potentially go to zero) if the Ghostscript application is executed in a loop without it exiting. Everything you need to know on this subject including a workaround if applicable to your case is described at http://vouters.dyndns.org/tima/Unix-Linux-OpenVMS-Ghostscript-Pthreads_objects_leak_when_posync.html

 

Yours truly,

Philippe
