func CFDictionaryCreateCopy(_ allocator: CFAllocator!, _ theDict: CFDictionary!) -> CFDictionary!



The allocator to use to allocate memory for the new dictionary. Pass NULL or kCFAllocatorDefault to use the current default allocator.


The dictionary to copy. The keys and values from the dictionary are copied as pointers into the new dictionary. However, the keys and values are also retained by the new dictionary. The count of the new dictionary is the same as the count of theDict. The new dictionary uses the same callbacks as theDict.

Return Value

A new dictionary that contains the same key-value pairs as theDict, or NULL if there was a problem creating the object. Ownership follows the The Create Rule.
