allocate-fobject

Arguments: type &optional allocation size

This function allocates an object of the given type in the heap area described by the allocation argument. If the size argument is given, then it is the minimum size (in bytes) of the data portion of the object that will be allocated. The function sizeof-fobject, which returns the size of an object of the given foreign type, might be useful in determining possible values for size.

The valid allocation argument values are as follows (default is :foreign). type should be a type defined with def-foreign-type.

See ftype.htm for information on foreign types in Allegro CL and foreign-functions.htm for general information on foreign functions in Allegro CL.
