LBER_MEMORY(3)          Library Functions Manual          LBER_MEMORY(3)

NAME         top

       ber_memalloc, ber_memcalloc, ber_memrealloc, ber_memfree,
       ber_memvfree - OpenLDAP LBER memory allocators

LIBRARY         top

       OpenLDAP LBER (liblber, -llber)

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <lber.h>

       void *ber_memalloc(ber_len_t bytes);

       void *ber_memcalloc(ber_len_t nelems, ber_len_t bytes);

       void *ber_memrealloc(void *ptr, ber_len_t bytes);

       void ber_memfree(void *ptr);

       void ber_memvfree(void **vec);

DESCRIPTION         top

       These routines are used to allocate/deallocate memory
       used/returned by the Lightweight BER library as required by
       lber-encode(3) and lber-decode(3).  ber_memalloc(),
       ber_memcalloc(), ber_memrealloc(), and ber_memfree() are used
       exactly like the standard malloc(3), calloc(3), realloc(3), and
       free(3) routines, respectively.  The ber_memvfree() routine is
       used to free a dynamically allocated array of pointers to
       arbitrary dynamically allocated objects.
