Debug versions of the _getcwd, _wgetcwd functions (only available during debug).
char *_getcwd_dbg( char *buffer, int maxlen, int blockType, const char *filename, int linenumber ); wchar_t *_wgetcwd_dbg( wchar_t *buffer, int maxlen, int blockType, const char *filename, int linenumber );
Returns a pointer to buffer. A NULL return value indicates an error, and errno is set either to ENOMEM, indicating that there is insufficient memory to allocate maxlen bytes (when a NULL argument is given as buffer), or to ERANGE, indicating that the path is longer than maxlen characters.
For more information, see errno, _doserrno, _sys_errlist, and _sys_nerr.
The _getcwd_dbg and _wgetcwd_dbg functions are identical to _getcwd and _wgetcwd except that, when _DEBUG is defined, these functions use the debug version of malloc and _malloc_dbg to allocate memory if NULL is passed as the first parameter. For more information, see _malloc_dbg.
You do not need to call these functions explicitly in most cases. Instead, you can define the _CRTDBG_MAP_ALLOC flag. When _CRTDBG_MAP_ALLOC is defined, calls to _getcwdand _wgetcwdare remapped to _getcwd_dbgand _wgetcwd_dbg, respectively, with the blockType set to _NORMAL_BLOCK. Thus, you do not need to call these functions explicitly unless you want to mark the heap blocks as _CLIENT_BLOCK. For more information, see Types of Blocks on the Debug Heap.
