[vlc-devel] A little coding advice needed for creating stream_t objects.

Opps.  What I provided was a slight simplification of my actual code.  
But I see I forgot to adjust to the void return type I specified in my

My actual code does return a value I can later use for a VLC_Destroy

Here is the actual code I use:

void *VLC_Init() {
    vlcmodule_t *p_vlcmodule = (vlcmodule_t *)calloc(1,sizeof(vlcmodule_t));
    if(p_vlcmodule == NULL ) {
        goto outofmemory;
    p_vlcmodule->destroy = vlcmodule_destroy;
    libvlc_exception_t *p_ex = &p_vlcmodule->ex;
    libvlc_exception_t *p_dummy = &p_vlcmodule->dummy;
    libvlc_exception_init (p_ex);
    libvlc_exception_init (p_dummy);

    static const char *args[] = {"cvlc","-I","dummy",NULL};
    p_vlcmodule->vlc = libvlc_new(3,args,p_ex);
    if (p_vlcmodule->vlc == NULL)
        goto error;
    libvlc_add_intf (p_vlcmodule->vlc, "signals", p_dummy);
    libvlc_add_intf (p_vlcmodule->vlc, NULL, p_ex);
    libvlc_vlm_init (p_vlcmodule->vlc, p_ex);
    p_vlm = (vlc_object_t *)p_vlcmodule->vlc->p_vlm;
    p_close_list = createDoubleLinkList(close_list_element_destroy);
    return p_vlcmodule;

    VLC_Destroy((vlc_object_t *)p_vlcmodule);
    return NULL;

        libvlc_exception_t ex;
        libvlc_exception_init ( &ex );
        libvlc_exception_raise( &ex, "Out of memory.");
    return NULL;
