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_DESTROY(3)						neon API reference					      NE_BUFFER_DESTROY(3)

NAME
ne_buffer_destroy, ne_buffer_finish - destroy a buffer object SYNOPSIS
#include <ne_string.h> void ne_buffer_destroy (ne_buffer *buf); char *ne_buffer_finish (ne_buffer *buf); DESCRIPTION
ne_buffer_destroy frees all memory associated with the buffer. ne_buffer_finish frees the buffer structure, but not the actual string stored in the buffer, which is returned and must be free()d by the caller. Any use of the buffer object after calling either of these functions gives undefined behaviour. RETURN VALUE
ne_buffer_finish returns the malloc-allocated string stored in the buffer. EXAMPLES
An example use of ne_buffer_finish; the duplicate function returns a string made up of n copies of str: static char *duplicate(int n, const char *str) { ne_buffer *buf = ne_buffer_create(); while (n--) { ne_buffer_zappend(buf, str); } return ne_buffer_finish(buf); } SEE ALSO
