report out of memory conditions

C Synopsis

#include <pcp/pmapi.h>

void pmNoMem(const char *where, size_t size, int fatal);

cc ... -lpcp


pmNoMem is a convenience method that may be used when malloc(3) or a related memory allocation service fails.

A standard message is emitted using pmNotifyErr(3) with where used as a message prefix and the failing allocation size is also reported.

If fatal is zero (and PM_RECOV_ERR is zero), pmNoMem returns (the allocation failure is assumed to be recoverable by the caller), else (and PM_FATAL_ERR is a good value to use in this case) exit(2) is called with an argument of 1.
