Use `free'. * * I'm told Microsoft Windows may use one set of `malloc' and `free' * in a library, and another incompatible set in a statically compiled * application that link to the library, thus creating problems if the * application would invoke `free' on a pointer pointing to memory * allocated by the library. This motivated adding this function. * * The theory of isolating all memory allocations and de-allocations * within a code package (library) sounds good, to simplify hunting * down memory allocation related problems, but I'm not sure if it is * worth enough to motivate recommending this interface over calling * `free' directly, though. * * If you have any thoughts or comments on this, please let me know. */ void idn_free (void *ptr);
