ne_malloc(3) [opensolaris man page]

NE_MALLOC(3)							neon API reference						      NE_MALLOC(3)

NAME
ne_malloc, ne_calloc, ne_realloc, ne_strdup, ne_strndup, ne_oom_callback - memory allocation wrappers SYNOPSIS
#include <ne_alloc.h> void *ne_malloc (size_t size); void *ne_calloc (size_t size); void *ne_realloc (void *size, size_t len); char *ne_strdup (const char *s, size_t size); char *ne_strndup (const char *s, size_t size); void ne_oom_callback (void (*callback)(void)); DESCRIPTION
The functions ne_malloc, ne_calloc, ne_realloc, ne_strdup and ne_strdnup provide wrappers for the equivalent functions in the standard C library. The wrappers provide the extra guarantee that if the C library equivalent returns NULL when no memory is available, an optional callback will be called, and the library will then call abort(). ne_oom_callback registers a callback which will be invoked if an out of memory error is detected. NOTES
If the operating system uses optimistic memory allocation, the C library memory allocation routines will not return NULL, so it is not pos- sible to gracefully handle memory allocation failures. AUTHOR

NE_BUFFER_CLEAR(3)						neon API reference						NE_BUFFER_CLEAR(3)

NAME
ne_buffer_clear, ne_buffer_grow, ne_buffer_altered - general purpose of group of functions SYNOPSIS
#include <ne_string.h> void ne_buffer_clear (ne_buffer *buf); void ne_buffer_altered (ne_buffer *buf); void ne_buffer_grow (ne_buffer *buf, size_t size); DESCRIPTION
The ne_buffer_clear function sets the string stored in buf to be the empty string (""). The ne_buffer_altered function must be used after the string stored in the buffer buf is modified by directly rather than using ne_buf- fer_append(3), ne_buffer_zappend(3) or ne_buffer_concat(3). The ne_buffer_grow function ensures that at least size bytes are allocated for the string; this can be used if a large amount of data is going to be appended to the buffer and may result in more efficient memory allocation.
