NAME
       tt_malloc - allocate storage on the ToolTalk API allocation stack

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Tt/tt_c.h>
       caddr_t tt_malloc(size_t s);

DESCRIPTION
       The  tt_malloc() function allocates storage on the ToolTalk API alloca-
       tion stack.

       The s argument is the amount of storage to be allocated in bytes.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon  successful  completion,  the  tt_malloc()  function  returns  the
       address  of the storage in the ToolTalk API allocation stack that is to
       be allocated.  If NULL is returned, no storage is available.

APPLICATION USAGE
       This function allows the application-provided callback routines to take
       advantage of the allocation stack; for example, a query filter function
       can allocate storage to accumulate a result.
