Discards the specified local memory object. The lock count of the memory object must be zero.
Note The local functions have greater overhead and provide fewer features than other memory management functions. New applications should use the heap functions unless documentation states that a local function should be used. For more information, see Global and Local Functions.

If the function succeeds, the return value is a handle to the local memory object.
If the function fails, the return value is NULL. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
Although LocalDiscard discards the object's memory block, the handle to the object remains valid. A process can subsequently pass the handle to the LocalReAlloc function to allocate another local memory object identified by the same handle.
