NAME

       autfreeblock - releases a memory block

SYNOPSYS

       #include "aut101.h"
       void autfreeblock( Pointer )
          char  Pointer;

PARAMETERS

       Pointer             Pointer to be given back to the system

DESCRIPTION

       autfreeblock  frees  a  pointer.  It is now a day just an encapsulation of the system free
       function, but may evolve to a special  allocator  in  the  future.  Its  use  is  strongly
       encouraged.

RETURN VALUE

       autfreeblock returns nothing.

EXAMPLE

       #include "aut101.h"
         char ∗Pointer;
         Pointer = autallocblock( 1024 );
         ...
         autfreeblock( Pointer );
