Developer tools for the Talloc library

Header files needed to develop programs that link against the Talloc library.

Library Functions (Section 3)
The talloc is a hierarchy memory allocator. The hierarchy nature is what makes the programming more error proof. It makes the memory easier to manage and to...
The talloc context is the most important part of this library and is responsible for every single feature of this memory allocator. It is a logical unit which...
We have already encountered the abort function in section Dynamic type system. In that case it was used when a type mismatch was detected.
Destructors are well known methods in the world of object oriented programming. A destructor is a method of an object that is automatically run when the object...
Generic programming in the C language is very difficult. There is no inheritance nor templates known from object oriented languages. There is no dynamic type...
Allocation of a new memory is an expensive operation and large programs can contain thousands of calls of malloc() for a single computation, where every call...
Talloc has the ability to change the parent of a talloc context to another one. This operation is commonly referred to as stealing and it is one of the most...
The talloc library is not internally thread-safe, in that accesses to variables on a talloc context are not controlled by mutexes or other thread-safe...
Talloc is a hierarchical, reference counted memory pool system with destructors. It is built atop the C standard library and it defines a set of utility...
talloc is a hierarchical, reference counted memory pool system with destructors. It is the core memory allocator used in Samba.
Talloc contains some handy helpers for handling Arrays conveniently.
To aid memory debugging, talloc contains routines to inspect the currently allocated memory hierarchy.
This module contains the definitions around talloc references.
talloc string allocation and manipulation functions.
