calloc() and malloc() Functions
What is the difference between "calloc(...)" and "malloc(...)"?
1. calloc(...) allocates a block of memory for an
array of elements of a certain size. By default the
block is initialized to 0. The total number of memory
allocated will be (number_of_elements * size).
malloc(...) takes in only a single argument which is the memory required in bytes. malloc(...) allocated bytes of memory and not blocks of memory like calloc(...).
2. malloc(...) allocates memory blocks and returns a void pointer to the allocated space, or NULL if there is insufficient memory available.
calloc(...) allocates an array in memory with elements initialized to 0 and returns a pointer to the allocated space. calloc(...) calls malloc(...) in order to use the C++ _set_new_mode function to set the new handler mode.
