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);

       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
       possible	to gracefully handle memory allocation failures.
