DisposeMem

Dispose of a heap memory block and Nil the pointer (deprecated)

Declaration

Source position: db.pas line 2256

procedure DisposeMem(

  var Buffer;

  Size: Integer

);

Arguments

Buffer

  

Pointer to memory area

Size

  

Size of the memory block

Description

DisposeMem disposes of the heap memory area pointed to by Buffer (Buffer must be of type Pointer). The Size parameter indicates the size of the memory area (it is, in fact, ignored by the heap manager). The pointer Buffer is set to Nil. If Buffer is Nil, then nothing happens. Do not use DisposeMem on objects, because their destructor will not be called.

Errors

If Buffer is not pointing to a valid heap memory block, then memory corruption may occur.
