/**
* Macro to free all elements of an XPCOM array of a given size using
* freeFunc, then frees the array itself using free().
*
* Note that this macro (and its wrappers) can be used to deallocate a
* partially- or completely-built array while unwinding an error
* condition inside the XPCOM routine that was going to return the
* array. For this to work on a partially-built array, your code
* needs to be building the array from index 0 upwards, and simply
* pass the number of elements that have already been built (and thus
* need to be freed) as |size|.
*
* Thanks to <alecf@netscape.com> for suggesting this form, which
* allows the macro to be used with NS_RELEASE / NS_RELEASE_IF in
* addition to free.
*
* @param size Number of elements in the array. If not a constant, this
* should be a int32_t. Note that this means this macro
* will not work if size >= 2^31.
* @param array The array to be freed.
* @param freeFunc The function or macro to be used to free it.
* For arrays of nsISupports (or any class derived
* from it), NS_IF_RELEASE (or NS_RELEASE) should be
* passed as freeFunc. For most (all?) other pointer
* types (including XPCOM strings and wstrings),
* free should be used.
