#ifndef mozmemory_wrap_h
#define mozmemory_wrap_h
// This header contains #defines which tweak the names of various memory
// allocation functions.
// There are several types of functions related to memory allocation
// that are meant to be used publicly by the Gecko codebase:
// - malloc implementation functions:
// - malloc
// - posix_memalign
// - aligned_alloc
// - calloc
// - realloc
// - free
// - memalign
// - valloc
// - malloc_usable_size
// - malloc_good_size
// Some of these functions are specific to some systems, but for
// convenience, they are treated as being cross-platform, and available
// as such.
// - duplication functions:
// - strndup
// - strdup
// - wcsdup (Windows only)
// - jemalloc specific functions:
// - jemalloc_stats
// - jemalloc_stats_num_bins
// - jemalloc_purge_freed_pages
// - jemalloc_free_dirty_pages
// - jemalloc_thread_local_arena
// - jemalloc_ptr_info
// (these functions are native to mozjemalloc)
// These functions are all exported as part of libmozglue (see
// $(topsrcdir)/mozglue/build/, with a few implementation
// peculiarities:
// - On Windows, the malloc implementation functions are all prefixed with
// "je_", the duplication functions are prefixed with "wrap_", and jemalloc
// specific functions are left unprefixed. All these functions are however
// aliased when exporting them, such that the resulting mozglue.dll exports
// them unprefixed (see $(topsrcdir)/mozglue/build/ The
// prefixed malloc implementation and duplication functions are not
// exported.
// - On MacOSX, the system libc has a zone allocator, which allows us to
// hook custom malloc implementation functions without exporting them.
// However, since we want things in Firefox to skip the system zone
// allocator, the malloc implementation functions are all exported
// unprefixed, as well as duplication functions.
// Jemalloc-specific functions are also left unprefixed.
// - On Android all functions are left unprefixed.
// - On other systems (mostly Linux), all functions are left unprefixed.
// On all platforms, C++ allocation functions are also exported.
// Proper exporting of the various functions is done with the MOZ_MEMORY_API
// and MOZ_JEMALLOC_API macros. MOZ_MEMORY_API is meant to be used for malloc
// implementation and duplication functions, while MOZ_JEMALLOC_API is
// dedicated to jemalloc specific functions.
// All these functions are meant to be called with no prefix from Gecko code.
// In most cases, this is because that's how they are available at runtime.
// However, on Android, this relies on faulty.lib (the custom dynamic linker)
// resolving mozglue symbols before libc symbols, which is guaranteed by the
// way faulty.lib works (it respects the DT_NEEDED order, and libc always
// appears after mozglue ; which we double check when building anyways)
// Within libmozglue (when MOZ_MEMORY_IMPL is defined), all the functions
// should be suffixed with "_impl" both for declarations and use.
// That is, the implementation declaration for e.g. strdup would look like:
// char* strdup_impl(const char *)
// That implementation would call malloc by using "malloc_impl".
