    Alloc

    « XPCOM API Reference

    Summary

    The Alloc function allocates a block of memory of a particular size.

     static void* Alloc(
       size_t aSize
     );
    

    Parameters

    aSize
    [in] Specifies the size in bytes of the block of memory to allocate.

    Return Values

    This function is Infallible, therefore guaranteed to return a pointer to the newly allocated buffer. The result must be freed with a call to nsMemory::Free() when it is no longer needed.

    Note: Prior to Gecko 13.0, this function returned nsnull if memory allocation failed.
