OPENSSL_MALLOC(3)     DragonFly Library Functions Manual     OPENSSL_MALLOC(3)

NAME

OPENSSL_malloc, OPENSSL_realloc, OPENSSL_free, OPENSSL_strdup, CRYPTO_malloc, CRYPTO_realloc, CRYPTO_free, CRYPTO_strdup - legacy OpenSSL memory allocation wrappers

SYNOPSIS

#include <openssl/crypto.h> void * OPENSSL_malloc(size_t num); void * OPENSSL_realloc(void *addr, size_t num); void OPENSSL_free(void *addr); char * OPENSSL_strdup(const char *str); void * CRYPTO_malloc(size_t num, const char *file, int line); void * CRYPTO_realloc(void *p, size_t num, const char *file, int line); void CRYPTO_free(void *str, const char *, int); char * CRYPTO_strdup(const char *p, const char *file, int line);

DESCRIPTION

Do not use any of the interfaces documented here in new code. They are provided purely for compatibility with legacy application code. All 8 of these functions are wrappers around the corresponding standard malloc(3), realloc(3), free(3), and strdup(3) functions.

RETURN VALUES

These functions return the same type and value as the corresponding standard functions.
