A "block-type object" is used to efficiently allocate and free blocks
of a particular size.  Freed blocks are remembered in a free list and
are reused as necessary to allocate new blocks, so as to avoid as
much as possible making calls to malloc() and free().

This is a container object.  Declare a block-type object of a specific type
as follows:

struct mytype_blocktype {
  Blocktype_declare (mytype);

Use the following functions/macros:

   structype *Blocktype_new(structype)
      [MACRO] Create a new block-type object of the specified type.
      The argument to this call should be the type of object to be
      created, e.g. foobar_blocktype.
   type *Blocktype_alloc(b)
      [MACRO] Allocate a block of the proper type for the specified
      block-type object and return a pointer to it.
   Blocktype_free(b, block)
      Free a block of the type corresponding to the specified block-type
      Destroy a block-type object and the memory allocated to it.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
