Instance Method

deallocate()

Deallocates the memory block previously allocated at this buffer pointer’s base address.

Declaration

func deallocate()

Discussion

This buffer pointer’s baseAddress must be nil or a pointer to a memory block previously returned by a Swift allocation method. If baseAddress is nil, this function does nothing. Otherwise, the memory must not be initialized or Pointee must be a trivial type. This buffer pointer’s byte count must be equal to the originally allocated size of the memory block.
