ldap_memcalloc(3) LDAP memory allocation routines

Other Alias

ldap_memfree, ldap_memvfree, ldap_memalloc, ldap_memrealloc, ldap_strdup


OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)


#include <ldap.h>

void ldap_memfree(void *p);

void ldap_memvfree(void **v);

void *ldap_memalloc(ber_len_t s);

void *ldap_memcalloc(ber_len_t n, ber_len_t s);

void *ldap_memrealloc(void *p, ber_len_t s);

char *ldap_strdup(LDAP_CONST char *p);


These routines are used to allocate/deallocate memory used/returned by the LDAP library. ldap_memalloc(), ldap_memcalloc(), ldap_memrealloc(), and ldap_memfree() are used exactly like the standard malloc(3), calloc(3), realloc(3), and free(3) routines, respectively. The ldap_memvfree() routine is used to free a dynamically allocated array of pointers to arbitrary dynamically allocated objects. The ldap_strdup() routine is used exactly like the standard strdup(3) routine.
