SYNOPSIS

#include <firestring.h>
-lfirestring

void *firestring_malloc(const size_t size)

DESCRIPTION

firestring_malloc() acts exactly like malloc(3) except that it detects malloc failures, prints an error and exit(3) with exit status EXIT_FAILURE. In most programs, malloc failures are unrecoverable, and this is the preferred behaviour.

RETURN VALUE

If firestring_malloc() returns, it always returns a new memory area of size bytes. It never returns NULL.
