Can you please explain, why is it bad? Pointer to string buffer goes "as is" to 3d party function, and even with explicit flag (there is one) not to make a copy in data structures created somewhere in 3d party code: "if FALSE, wrap the user's pixel buffer, otherwise, make a deep copy". I was actually proud because of this "no copying, low memory, fast code" thing. All works as expected, no leaks with long running code, no failures, etc. After images are saved, piddles themselves are not needed (nor checked what happened to them). The only issue was when identical piddles happened in original list, then every other channel was mirrored, but I don't know if it means buffer itself gets modified or image coder gets confused.

And thank you for C recipe for forcing a copy.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
