Using FastMM

Post by edbored » 18 Aug 2005, 01:10

I've recently started using FastMM (http://sourceforge.net/projects/fastmm/)in my Delphi projects - there's a noticeable performance improvement, and it also incorporates some useful memory leak detection.


My first attempt to use it with CADImportVCL causes an AV when trying to perform

Image1.Picture.LoadFromFile('somefile.dwg');

The AV is in:

graphics.pas
TPicture.LoadFromFile
on the "NewGraphic.LoadFromFile(FileName);" line.

Given the performance boost, it might be worthwhile looking into supporting FastMM for users that want to include it in their projects.


Cheers,
EdB
