Chapter 1. General PSYX information
free(), et al., it is recommended that you use equivalent PsyScope routines:
Free(), etc. These routines are faster, have more error-checking ability, and do not fragment PsyScope's heap.
There is also an
ExpMalloc() family of memory routines. These are used for allocations within the PsyScript's heap, and should generally not be used.
ExpMalloc() families actually call the
ExpZoneMalloc() family, which handles memory allocations in arbitrary heaps. Using the
ExpZoneMalloc() routines, you can set up your own sub-heap within PsyScope; this is useful when you need to perform a large number of allocations and free them all at once (by freeing the entire heap).
