SYNOPSYS






#include "mut.h"
char *mbkalloc(bytes)
unsigned int bytes;


PARAMETER

bytes Number of memory bytes to be contiguously allocated

DESCRIPTION

mbkalloc returns a block of bytes length, for any purpose. It is now a day just an encapsulation of the system malloc function, but may evolve to a special allocator in the future. Its use is strongly encouraged.
Remark : a global variable, long mbkalloc_stat, updates the number of allocated bytes, and may be accessed by anyone to see the amount of allocated memory.

RETURN VALUE

mbkalloc returns a pointer to a bytes long block.

ERROR

"*** mbk error *** mbkalloc impossible : not enough memory"
System break can’t be moved anymore, no more memory can be retrieved from the system.

EXAMPLE






#include "mut.h"
char *dup_str(s);
{
char *t = (char *)mbkalloc(strlen(s) + (unsigned int)1);
   strcpy(t, s);
   return t;
}
