NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       contig_free  - General: Frees a block of memory previously
       allocated by contig_malloc

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <sys/malloc.h>

       void contig_free(
               void *addr,
               u_long size,
               int type );

ARGUMENTS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies the address of  the  memory  being  freed.  This
       address  was returned in a previous call to contig_malloc.
       Specifies the size (in bytes) of the memory  being  freed.
       You  should pass the same value used to allocate this memory
 in the call to contig_malloc.  Specifies  the  purpose
       for  which  the  memory is being allocated (or freed). The
       memory  type   constants   are   defined   in   the   file
       /usr/sys/include/sys/malloc.h.  Examples  of  memory  type
       constants are M_DEVBUF (device  driver  memory),  M_KTABLE
       (kernel  table  memory), M_RTABLE (routing tables memory),
       and so forth.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The contig_free routine frees the memory  allocated  in  a
       previous  call  to  contig_malloc. If the memory came from
       the saved memory pool, contig_free puts  it  back  in  the
       saved memory pool; otherwise, the interface frees the memory
 to the virtual memory subsystem.
