iOS C/C++ Static Library Sizes

There is often alarm at the size of the Chilkat static libraries (.a) for iOS. This should not be of too much concern, because after building your app in Release mode, your app’s executable will NOT grow by the size of the static library. It will only grow by a very small fraction of the total size of the .a […]

Auto-release Pools and Background Threads

Regarding Objective-C programming for MAC OS X and IOS: (from https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Cocoa/Conceptual/MemoryMgmt/Articles/mmAutoreleasePools.html ) Cocoa always expects there to be an autorelease pool available. If a pool is not available, autoreleased objects do not get released and your application leaks memory. If you send an autorelease message when a pool is not available, Cocoa logs a suitable error message. The AppKit and […]

(IOS) Creating a Chilkat Universal Library

The Chilkat IOS library download provides separate static libs for the device and simulator. The universal lib is not included because (1) it is easy to create from the individual libs, and (2) it reduces the size of the download. To create a single IOS Chilkat universal lib, run the following libtool command from the root of the Chilkat directory […]
