A.1.10 Allocating Local Memory in Oct-Files

Allocating memory within an oct-file might seem easy as the C++ new/delete operators can be used. However, in that case care must be taken to avoid memory leaks. The preferred manner in which to allocate memory for use locally is to use the OCTAVE_LOCAL_BUFFER macro. An example of its use is

 
OCTAVE_LOCAL_BUFFER (double, tmp, len)

that returns a pointer tmp of type double * of length len.
