THyperparse memory leak

hi!

I'm using THyperParse to parse HTML files and extract information. Now the problem is that it has a memory leak: creating and destroying 100 objects takes up to ~50MB of memory when the file is large enough; according to the task manager.

Of course I could use another component (though hard to find a free one which is right for me), but time is pressing and I can't migrate the whole project just now.
Before you ask, yes I've asked the author, but he can't help me right now, because he's no time.

I've created a sample app which you can download from
http://www.hds-pad.de/dld/hyperparse-memory.zip  (which includes the component, as well).

This is quite important. If you find a solution I'll raise the # of points!


thanks a lot!

Well, looking at the source code posted (which doesn't seem to quite match your project, ie Execute doesn't take any params, but your code is passing a string), the
THtmlInfo object does not cleanup its item list when the destructor is run

Should be something like...

destructor THtmlInfo.Destroy;
var  dwIndex:    Integer;
begin

  // *** Addition ***
  for dwIndex:=Pred(FParamList.Count) downto 0 do
  begin
     Dispose(PHtmlParameter(FParamList[dwIndex]));
  end;
  // *** End of addition ***

  FParamList.Free;

  inherited Destroy;

end;

Regards,
Russell
