Be smarter with our strings for AUTOCOMPLETE_MATCH SQL function


(Toolkit :: Places, defect)

Not set





(Reporter: sdwilsh, Assigned: sdwilsh)




(1 file, 2 obsolete files)

fixupURISpec returns an nsString, but this results in us allocating said string three times (once in function, once by generating a temporary for returning, and once for the return variable).  Ouch.  We should just make it an out param.

Also, all the calls to GetString end up copying.  We really want to just call GetSharedString and store it in the dependent string ourselves.

Less string copying will make this a wee bit faster.
In fact, profiling shows that calling GetString (because it calls Assign) accounts for ~1% of the time in the function!  Yikes!

way to invert your logic, shawn :)

r=dwitte with that fixed.

Looks like I just forgot to qrefresh that logic error.  Fixed locally.

r=me w/ dwitte's change.

This landed, but was backed out once I built in a debug build and hit assertions.  The trivial fix passed tests (I'll attach that shortly), so this is going to require more work.  I'll do that /after/ I fix all the blockers for bug 455555.

Like I said - this doesn't work right.
Attachment #389023 - Attachment is obsolete: true
All of the dependent string stuff is actually a bad idea - violates the SQLite API.  Sadfaces.
Attached patch v3.0Splinter Review
This passes tests and uses the string API to reduce some coping and malloc's when possible.
