    [RESOLVED] Behavior if script terminates before reaching imagedestroy

    Does anyone know what happens to a script if an image file is being manipulated (as the result of a imagecreatetruecolor call) and the script terminates before reading the call to imagedestroy that would free the memory? Does termination of the script free the memory automatically or is a memory leak created? If the latter, is there a design pattern to avoid the failure to free memory?

    Sorry for such a basic question; I read the PHP man page on the issue and was still confused.

    Being that PHP is an interpreted language, resources are not kept past script execution.
    If the post was helpful...Rate it! Remember to use [code] or [php] tags.
