Subject: RE: [Caml-list] nonlinear fit function binding
I did a wrapping of the levmar library.

 

The approach I chose is to allocate bigarrays from Caml, and pass them to the main C function, along with the function f.

In the main function, I register f and all the bigarrays as global roots, and then call as many times the c sub function to compute the minimization.

 

Feel free to ask for more precisions if needed

Hope this helps.

 

Rabih

Well. It seems my former message was unclear?

Here is a more precise question: should/could C allocated bigarrays
 be freed?

Context:

OCaml calls one C function M, at about 50 Hz.                                  
In M,  a C function (let's call it A) is locally defined.
One pointer to A is given to another function, that
calls A more than once.

Function A wraps a C array it receives as a parameter
into a bigarray, and give it to OCaml through one callback. 

The whole process is repeated, at about 50 Hz.

I do not know if the bigarrays allocated by M are garbage
collected in any way, and if they are not, how I could free
them in order to avoid any memory leak? 

Thanks in advance
