void * SPI_repalloc(void * pointer, Size size)


SPI_repalloc changes the size of a memory segment previously allocated using SPI_palloc.

This function is no longer different from plain repalloc. It's kept just for backward compatibility of existing code.

Size size

size in bytes of storage to allocate

Return Value

pointer to new storage space of specified size with the contents copied from the existing area
