}

An object is created by the malloc and memset functions and destroyed using the free function. The constructor for the object of the std::vector<std::string> is not called. Such an object cannot be used. The destructor is not called. At least there will be a memory leak. In general, there is no point in thinking how this code may work. There will be definitely undefined behavior.

Similar errors can be found in some other places:
