Instruments and releasing newLine


I’m a bit confused… I’ve added the [newLine release] but when I run the app in Instruments again, the Living count is still the same as the Overall count. I know the book says to rebuild the app from Xcode and I’ve done that but not seeing any Line objects being released.


Hmmm completely weird. I just ran another compiled app on the iPhone, came back to Instruments and it started working as expected.


It is possible you didn’t rebuild the project after you added the memory leak. When using Instruments, always build first, then run with performance tool.
