Memory Allocators — deprecated way to allocate chunks of memory for GList, GSList and GNode
#include <glib.h> GAllocator; GAllocator* g_allocator_new (const gchar *name, guint n_preallocs); void g_allocator_free (GAllocator *allocator);
Prior to 2.10, GAllocator was used as an efficient way to allocate small pieces of memory for use with the GList, GSList and GNode data structures. Since 2.10, it has been completely replaced by the slice allocator and deprecated.
typedef struct _GAllocator GAllocator;
GAllocator is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.
The GAllocator struct contains private data. and should only be accessed using the following functions.
GAllocator* g_allocator_new (const gchar *name, guint n_preallocs);
g_allocator_new has been deprecated since version 2.10 and should not be used in newly-written code. Use the slice allocator
Creates a new GAllocator.
||the name of the GAllocator. This name is used to set the name of the GMemChunk used by the GAllocator, and is only used for debugging.|
||the number of elements in each block of memory allocated.
Larger blocks mean less calls to
