Default Chapter 13

I am getting an unexpected result running the PerformanceTest program. The obvious DataItem leak is not being noted in instruments. The NSString that is not released is detected.

Also, Listing 13-4 does not have a memory leak since the [item release]; line is included as is the [str release]; in the method. These lines are missing in Listing 13-6, as they should be, to demonstrate the leak.

Is this using Xcode 4 Bob ?

If so, I have notice this happening a number of times with current code I am writing for clients with Xcode 4.

I built the project in Xcode 4 but have run it in Instruments 2.7 from Xcode 3 and Instruments 4.0 in Xcode 4 with the same results. Not that I expect a different result, but I will be redoing the entire project again in Xcode 3 to see if anything turns out differently.

Having redone the project in Xcode 3.2.6 with the same results (i.e. the leak of DataItem not detected), I did a little research. Several sources (stackoverflow has several responses to related issues) claim that Leaks only detects a leak if a reference to the object no longer exists. To test this I did the following

Code:
-(IBAction)addDataToDictionary:(id)sender
{
	NSString *str = nil;
	DataItem *item = [[DataItem alloc] init];
	item.age = self.ageTextField.text;
	item.name = self.nameTextField.text;
	
	[self.dataArray addObject:item];
		  	
	str = [[NSString alloc] initWithFormat:@"Current count = %d",[self.dataArray count]];
	
	totalCountLabel.text = str;
	if ([self.dataArray count]%10 == 0) {
		[self printLog];
	}
}

-(void)printLog
{
	NSLog(@"The count has gone up by 10");
	NSLog(@"removing all objects");
	[self.dataArray removeAllObjects];
}
After the objects are removed from the array, the leaks do show up. No references, but a retain count greater than 0. This matches the behavior that the stackoverflow respondent said would occur
