MDN wants to learn about developers like you:

Allocates memory of a specified size from the heap.


#include <prmem.h>

_type * PR_NEW(_struct);


The name of a type.


An pointer to a buffer sized to contain the type _struct, or if the allocation attempt fails, NULL. Call PR_GetError() to retrieve the error returned by the libc function.


This macro allocates memory whose size is sizeof(_struct) and returns a pointer to that memory.
