    Command:

    malloc_set_state

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <stdlib.h>
    
           void* malloc_get_state(void);
    
           int malloc_set_state(void *state);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The malloc_get_state() function records the current state of  all  mal-
           loc(3)  internal  bookkeeping variables (but not the actual contents of
           the heap or the state of malloc_hook(3) functions pointers).  The state
           is  recorded  in  a  system-dependent opaque data structure dynamically
           allocated via malloc(3), and  a  pointer  to  that  data  structure  is
           returned as the function result.  (It is the caller's responsibility to
           free(3) this memory.)
    
           The malloc_set_state() function restores the  state  of  all  malloc(3)
           internal  bookkeeping  variables  to  the values recorded in the opaque
           data structure pointed to by state.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           On success, malloc_get_state() returns a pointer to a  newly  allocated
           opaque  data  structure.   On  error  (for example, memory could not be
           allocated for the data structure), malloc_get_state() returns NULL.
    
           On  success,  malloc_set_state()  returns  0.   If  the  implementation
           detects that state does not point to a correctly formed data structure,
           malloc_set_state() returns -1.  If the implementation detects that  the
           version  of  the  data  structure referred to by state is a more recent
           version  than  this  implementation  knows  about,   malloc_set_state()
           returns -2.
    
    
    

    CONFORMING TO

           These functions are GNU extensions.
    
    
    

    NOTES

           These  functions are especially useful when using this malloc(3) imple-
           mentation as part of a  shared  library,  and  the  heap  contents  are
           saved/restored  via  some  other method.  This technique is used by the
           GNU Emacs to implement its "dumping" function.
    
           Hook function pointers are never saved or restored by these  functions,
           with  two  exceptions:  if  malloc checking (see mallopt(3)) was in use
           when malloc_get_state() was called, then malloc_set_state() resets mal-
           loc  checking  hooks  if possible; if malloc checking was not in use in
           the recorded state, but the caller has requested malloc checking,  then
           the hooks are reset to 0.
