[00:08:28] <Colourless> have you read about the oddities with the param pid change opcode?
[00:09:45] <DarkeWork> Not yet. I'll pop up the webpage now.
[00:12:51] <Colourless> basically what i mostly noticed is that the 'new' process doesn't free the strings and lists that are passed as arguments to it.
[00:14:42] <DarkeWork> (ref counting) Unlikely. You'd have to worry about problems like COW and such. I'm pretty sure it's likely to have copied it just for the simplicity factor.
[00:15:56] <DarkeWork> (ref counting) I would have thought the whole point of passing them as an address to a string/slist/list would be that you can then modify them.
[00:18:50] <DarkeWork> (ref counting) And yes, the called function makes 'copies' (or ref counts or whatever), and the caller function frees them. I think I need to expand the documentation in there a bit. Got waaaaay too much stuff in my head. *grin* Can you guess why I just ramble onto the irc channel just to have a permanant record? *grin*
