    SYNOPSIS

           #include <stdlib.h>
    
           /* In SunOS 4 */
           int cfree(void *ptr);
    
           /* In glibc or FreeBSD libcompat */
           void cfree(void *ptr);
    
           /* In SCO OpenServer */
           void cfree(char *ptr, unsigned num, unsigned size);
    
           /* In Solaris watchmalloc.so.1 */
           void cfree(void *ptr, size_t nelem, size_t elsize);
    
       Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
    
           cfree(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           This function should never be used.  Use free(3) instead.
    
       1-arg cfree
           In  glibc,  the  function  cfree() is a synonym for free(3), "added for
           compatibility with SunOS".
    
           Other systems have other functions with this name.  The declaration  is
           sometimes in <stdlib.h> and sometimes in <malloc.h>.
    
       3-arg cfree
           Some  SCO  and Solaris versions have malloc libraries with a 3-argument
           cfree(), apparently as an analog to calloc(3).
    
           If you need it while porting something, add
    
               #define cfree(p, n, s) free((p))
    
           to your file.
    
           A frequently asked question is "Can I use free(3) to free memory  allo-
           cated with calloc(3), or do I need cfree()?"  Answer: use free(3).
    
           An  SCO manual writes: "The cfree routine is provided for compliance to
           the iBCSe2 standard and simply calls free.  The num and size  arguments
           to cfree are not used."
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           The SunOS version of cfree() (which is a synonym for free(3)) returns 1
           on success and 0 on failure.  In case of error, errno is set to EINVAL:
           the  value  of ptr was not a pointer to a block previously allocated by
           one of the routines in the malloc(3) family.
