Sun StorageTek 5800 System Client API Reference Manual

Memory Usage

The 5800 system C client library generally follows the model of populating externally allocated data structures such as handles, buffers, and result arrays.

Some internal data structures are generated during XML document construction. These data structures are allocated and freed using the function pointers supplied to hc_init when initializing the library (see Initializing a Global Session).

Other data structures are allocated and returned to the user; these have corresponding functions to free them. For example, hc_session_create_ez and hc_session_free.
