Re: AW: DLL function with string result?

I would vote for something like you have a function 'dealloc' exported
from the dll that has a function that returns the char* in the first

Have you  tried copying the string by hand?? Sort of.. I mean, could
it be that the implementation of strdup can't handle strings that are
longer than 64k.

Which compiler-platform is it on?? What code does what?? Please answer
that question first!
