2. strlen vs. lstrlenA
9�Aug�2000�-�10�Aug�2000 (9 posts) Archive Link: "lstrlenA exception handling"
People: ,�Marcus MeissnerJim Aston, while profiling Wine code with cprof (BROKEN KCREF), found out that the exception handling around lstrlenA was a rather high tribute. Jim then wondered why such an exception mechanism was needed (running without gave a performance improvement). Marcus Meissner explained that Windows allowed NULL (or invalid) parameters to be passed to lstrlenA, and in that case to return error codes, hence the TRY/EXCEPT block around the function. However, it would be possible to replace call to lstrlenA inside Wine with their libc equivalent (strlen), for gaining some speed. This has been committed to the CVS tree.
