Description

autfreeblock frees a pointer. It is now a day just an encapsulation of the system free function, but may evolve to a special allocator in the future. Its use is strongly encouraged.

Return Value

autfreeblock returns nothing.

Example

#include "aut101.h"
  char ∗Pointer;
  Pointer = autallocblock( 1024 );
  ...
  autfreeblock( Pointer );
