NAME
     alloca — memory allocator

SYNOPSIS
     #include <stdlib.h>

     void *
     alloca(size_t size);

DESCRIPTION
     The alloca() function allocates size bytes of space in the stack frame of
     the caller.  This temporary space is automatically freed on return.

RETURN VALUES
     The alloca() function returns a pointer to the beginning of the allocated
     space.  If the allocation failed, a NULL pointer is returned.

SEE ALSO
     brk(2), pagesize(2) calloc(3), malloc(3), realloc(3),

BUGS
     The alloca() function is machine dependent; its use is discouraged.
