Symbolic constants

#define APR_MEMNODE_T_SIZE   APR_ALIGN_DEFAULT(sizeof(apr_memnode_t))

The base size of a memory node - aligned.

Typedef Documentation

typedef struct apr_allocator_t apr_allocator_t

the allocator structure

typedef struct apr_memnode_t apr_memnode_t

the structure which holds information about the allocation

Function Documentation

apr_memnode_t* apr_allocator_alloc ( apr_allocator_t allocator,
apr_size_t  size 

Allocate a block of mem from the allocator

allocator The allocator to allocate from
size The size of the mem to allocate (excluding the memnode structure)

apr_status_t apr_allocator_create ( apr_allocator_t **  allocator  ) 

Create a new allocator

allocator The allocator we have just created.

void apr_allocator_destroy ( apr_allocator_t allocator  ) 

Destroy an allocator

allocator The allocator to be destroyed
Any memnodes not given back to the allocator prior to destroying will _not_ be free()d.

void apr_allocator_free ( apr_allocator_t allocator,
apr_memnode_t memnode 

Free a list of blocks of mem, giving them back to the allocator. The list is typically terminated by a memnode with its next field set to NULL.

allocator The allocator to give the mem back to
memnode The memory node to return

void apr_allocator_max_free_set ( apr_allocator_t allocator,
apr_size_t  size 

Set the current threshold at which the allocator should start giving blocks back to the system.

allocator The allocator the set the threshold on
size The threshold. 0 == unlimited.

apr_thread_mutex_t* apr_allocator_mutex_get ( apr_allocator_t allocator  ) 

Get the mutex currently set for the allocator

allocator The allocator

void apr_allocator_mutex_set ( apr_allocator_t allocator,
apr_thread_mutex_t mutex 

Set a mutex for the allocator to use

allocator The allocator to set the mutex for
mutex The mutex

apr_pool_t* apr_allocator_owner_get ( apr_allocator_t allocator  ) 

Get the current owner of the allocator

allocator The allocator to get the owner from

void apr_allocator_owner_set ( apr_allocator_t allocator,
apr_pool_t pool 

Set the owner of the allocator

allocator The allocator to set the owner for
pool The pool that is to own the allocator
Typically pool is the highest level pool using the allocator
