- The C heap allocator.Examples:
auto buffer = Mallocator.instance.allocate(1024 * 1024 * 4); scope(exit) Mallocator.instance.deallocate(buffer); //...
- Standard allocator methods per the semantics defined above. The deallocate and reallocate methods are @system because they may move memory around, leaving dangling pointers in user code. Somewhat paradoxically, malloc is @safe but that's only useful to safe programs that can afford to leak memory allocated.
- Aligned allocator using OS-specific primitives, under a uniform API.Examples:
auto buffer = AlignedMallocator.instance.alignedAllocate(1024 * 1024 * 4, 128); scope(exit) AlignedMallocator.instance.deallocate(buffer); //...
- Forwards to alignedAllocate(bytes, platformAlignment).
- Calls free(b.ptr) on Posix and _aligned_free(b.ptr) on Windows.
- On Posix, forwards to realloc. On Windows, forwards to alignedReallocate(b, newSize, platformAlignment).
