The analyzer has detected that an instance of class 'std::string_view' is initialized by or assigned a temporary object.
Consider the following example:
std::string hello = "Hello, "; std::string_view helloWorldPtr = hello + "world\n"; std::cout << helloWorldPtr;
In the second line of this code, a temporary object of the type 'std::string' will be created, the pointer to which will be copied when initializing the instance of the 'std::string_view' class. After that, once the initialization expression has been evaluated, the temporary object will be destroyed; therefore, the pointer used in the third line will be referring to a freed memory block.
This is the fixed version:
std::string hello = "Hello, "; const std::string helloWorld = hello + "world\n"; std::string_view helloWorldPtr = helloWorld; std::cout << helloWorldPtr;
According to Common Weakness Enumeration, potential errors found by using this diagnostic are classified as CWE-416.
