VALLOC(3) Library Functions Manual VALLOC(3) NAME valloc - aligned memory allocation function LIBRARY Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS #include <stdlib.h> void * valloc(size_t size); DESCRIPTION The valloc() function is obsoleted by the current version of malloc(3), which aligns page-sized and larger allocations. The valloc() function allocates size bytes aligned on a page boundary. It is implemented by calling malloc(3) with a slightly larger request, saving the true beginning of the block allocated, and returning a properly aligned pointer. RETURN VALUES The valloc() function returns a pointer to the allocated space if successful; otherwise a null pointer is returned HISTORY The valloc() function appeared in 3.0BSD. BUGS A vfree() function has not been implemented. NetBSD 8.99.34 May 6, 2010 NetBSD 8.99.34
