    What is the cleanup stack?

    Hello! I´m starting with symbian c++ and I don´t know which is the use of the cleanup stack.

    Can anybody help me? Thanks

    Simply put, the cleanup stack manages memory that would leak - be orphaned - in case there is an unhandled exception (a "leave", in Symbian terms).

    In other words, you push objects to the cleanup stack before you call code that might leave. If a leave takes place, the cleanup stack manages the deallocation of objects orphaned in that manner. If no leave happens, you pop what you pushed there.

    In order to get faster up to speed, consider buying a book like, e.g., the Series 60 book mentioned here: http://forum.nokia.com/books

    There is a number of great books about Symbian OS. Just pick one of them: http://www.symbian.com/books/index.html
