Allocates space for an array of a number of elements of a specified size.
#include "slapi-plugin.h" char * slapi_ch_calloc( unsigned long nelem, unsigned long size );
This function takes the following parameters:
Number of elements for which you wish to allocate memory.
Size in bytes of the element for which you wish to allocate memory.
This function returns a pointer to the newly allocated space of memory. If space cannot be allocated (for example, if no more virtual memory exists), the slapd program terminates.
This function should be called instead of the standard calloc() C function, and terminates the slapd server with an “out of memory” error message if memory cannot be allocated.
You should free the returned pointer by calling slapi_ch_free() .
