CFAllocatorDeallocateCallBack

A prototype for a function callback that deallocates a block of memory.

Declaration

typealias CFAllocatorDeallocateCallBack = (UnsafeMutableRawPointer?, UnsafeMutableRawPointer?) -> Void

The block of memory to deallocate.

Discussion

A prototype for a function callback that deallocates a given block of memory. In implementing this function, make the block of memory pointed to by ptr available for subsequent reuse by the allocator but unavailable for continued use by the program. The ptr parameter cannot be NULL and if the ptr parameter is not a block of memory that has been previously allocated by the allocator, the results are undefined; abnormal program termination can occur.
