firestring_malloc(3)	   Library Functions Manual	  firestring_malloc(3)

NAME
       firestring_malloc - malloc(3) with internal result checking

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<firestring.h>
       -lfirestring

       void *firestring_malloc(const size_t size)

DESCRIPTION
       firestring_malloc()  acts exactly like malloc(3)	except that it detects
       malloc  failures,  prints  an  error  and  exit(3)  with	 exit	status
       EXIT_FAILURE.  In most programs,	malloc failures	are unrecoverable, and
       this is the preferred behaviour.

RETURN VALUE
       If firestring_malloc() returns, it always returns a new memory area  of
       size bytes. It never returns NULL.
