Subject [lucy-issues] [jira] [Created] (CLOWNFISH-38) Safe helpers to allocate arrays
Date Fri, 24 Apr 2015 10:43:38 GMT
Nick Wellnhofer created CLOWNFISH-38:
----------------------------------------

             Summary: Safe helpers to allocate arrays
                 Key: CLOWNFISH-38
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOWNFISH-38
             Project: Apache Lucy-Clownfish
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Nick Wellnhofer


Code like {{MALLOCATE(num_elems * sizeof(Type))}} in often unsafe because it fails to check
whether the multiplication overflows. We should provide helper functions to allocate and reallocate
arrays safely. See {{reallocarray}} in BSD, for example.
