void _aligned_free_dbg( void *memblock );
A pointer to the memory block that was returned to the
_aligned_free_dbg function is a debug version of the _aligned_free function. When _DEBUG is not defined, each call to
_aligned_free_dbg is reduced to a call to _
aligned_free. Both _
_aligned_free_dbg free a memory block in the base heap, but
_aligned_free_dbg accommodates a debugging feature: the ability to keep freed blocks in the heap's linked list to simulate low memory conditions.
_aligned_free_dbg performs a validity check on all specified files and block locations before performing the free operation. The application is not expected to provide this information. When a memory block is freed, the debug heap manager automatically checks the integrity of the buffers on either side of the user portion and issues an error report if overwriting has occurred. If the
_CRTDBG_DELAY_FREE_MEM_DF bit field of the _crtDbgFlag flag is set, the freed block is filled with the value 0xDD, assigned the
_FREE_BLOCK block type, and kept in the heap's linked list of memory blocks.
If an error occurs in freeing the memory,
errno is set with information from the operating system on the nature of the failure. For more information, see errno, _doserrno, _sys_errlist, and _sys_nerr.
