5.1 Definition of Terms and other Information

Here are a couple definitions and other information for those interested in "picking the brain" of the library. The code is a little ugly here and there and it conforms to the Gray-Watson handbook of coding standards only.

bblock

basic block containing 2 ^ BASIC_BLOCK bytes of info

bblock_adm

administration for a set of basic blocks

dblock

divided block containing some base 2 number of blocks smaller than a basic block.

dblock_adm

administration for a set of divided blocks

chunk

some anonymous amount of memory

For more information about administration structures, see the code and comments from `chunk_loc.h'.
