Description

NPN_ReleaseVariantValue() releases the value in the given variant. This must always be called on result variants and such in this API, i.e. any NPVariant whose value comes from a call that passes back an NPVariant must be released using this function. Access to the value in an NPVariant that has been released will result in undefined behavior.

NPN_ReleaseVariantValue() will call NPN_ReleaseObject() on NPVariants of type NPVARIANTTYPE_OBJECT, and NPN_MemFree() on NPVariants of type NPVARIANTTYPE_STRING.
