NAME
     freefree up memory allocated with malloc, calloc or realloc

SYNOPSIS
     #include <stdlib.h>

     void
     free(void *ptr);

DESCRIPTION
     The free() function causes the space pointed to by ptr to be deallocated,
     that is, made available for further allocation.  If ptr is a null
     pointer, no action occurs.	 Otherwise, if the argument does not match a
     pointer earlier returned by the calloc, malloc, or realloc function, or
     if the space has been deallocated by a call to free() or realloc, general
     havoc may occur.

RETURN VALUES
     The free() function returns no value.

SEE ALSO
     calloc(3), malloc(3), realloc(3)

STANDARDS
     The free() function conforms to ANSI X3.159-1989 (“ANSI C89”).
