=head1 NAME

FFI::Platypus::Memory - Memory functions for FFI

=head1 VERSION

version 1.55


 use FFI::Platypus::Memory;
 # allocate 64 bytes of memory using the
 # libc malloc function.
 my $pointer = malloc 64;
 # use that memory wisely
 # free the memory when you are done.
 free $pointer;


This module provides an interface to common memory functions provided by
the standard C library.  They may be useful when constructing interfaces
to C libraries with FFI.  It works mostly with the C<opaque> type and it
is worth reviewing the section on opaque pointers in L<FFI::Platypus::Type>.


=head2 calloc

 my $pointer = calloc $count, $size;

The C<calloc> function contiguously allocates enough space for I<$count>
objects that are I<$size> bytes of memory each.

=head2 free

 free $pointer;

The C<free> function frees the memory allocated by C<malloc>, C<calloc>,
C<realloc> or C<strdup>.  It is important to only free memory that you
yourself have allocated.  A good way to crash your program is to try and
free a pointer that some C library has returned to you.

=head2 malloc

 my $pointer = malloc $size;

The C<malloc> function allocates I<$size> bytes of memory.

=head2 memcpy

 memcpy $dst_pointer, $src_pointer, $size;

The C<memcpy> function copies I<$size> bytes from I<$src_pointer> to
I<$dst_pointer>.  It also returns I<$dst_pointer>.

=head2 memset

 memset $buffer, $value, $length;

The C<memset> function writes I<$length> bytes of I<$value> to the address
specified by I<$buffer>.

=head2 realloc

 my $new_pointer = realloc $old_pointer, $size;

The C<realloc> function reallocates enough memory to fit I<$size> bytes.
It copies the existing data and frees I<$old_pointer>.

If you pass C<undef> in as I<$old_pointer>, then it behaves exactly like

 my $pointer = realloc undef, 64; # same as malloc 64

=head2 strcpy

 strcpy $opaque, $string;

Copies the string to the memory location pointed to by C<$opaque>.

=head2 strdup

 my $pointer = strdup $string;

The C<strdup> function allocates enough memory to contain I<$string> and
then copies it to that newly allocated memory.  This version of
C<strdup> returns an opaque pointer type, not a string type.  This may
seem a little strange, but returning a string type would not be very
useful in Perl.

=head2 strndup

 my $pointer = strndup $string, $max;

The same as C<strdup> above, except at most C<$max> characters will be
copied in the new string.
