8.2 version

allocate-fobject-fp

Arguments: type &optional size

This function is defined by the ACLWIN compatibility package. It is loaded with

(require :aclwffi)

However, it is for compatibility with Allegro CL 4.3.2, an early release of the UNIX product on Windows which had limited distribution, not compatibility with Allegro CL 3.0.x on Windows.

This function is provided for porting from Allegro CL 4.3.2 only and users with 4.3.2 code calling this function are urged to convert the call to an allocate-fobject call as quickly as possible. (Use the allocation argument of allocate-fobject to specify where the allocation should occur. Specify :foreign-static-gc for allocation to get behavior equivalent to this macro.)

This function allocates some data in the C heap. The object allocated will be automatically garbage collected when it's no longer in use.

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