File geos_explicit_char_restype.diff, 1.9 KB (added by jbronn, 9 years ago)

Uses a subclass of c_char_p for the response type.

     10# type is set to c_char_p, you get a _Python_ string and there's no way
     11# to access the string's address inside the error checking function.
     12# In other words, you can't free the memory allocated inside GEOS.  Previously,
     13# the return type would just be omitted and the integer address would be
     14# used -- but this allows us to be specific in the function definition and
     15# keeps the reference so it may be free'd.
