NAME

debugmalloc() - dumps information on malloc'd memory to a file.

SYNOPSIS

void debugmalloc( string filename, int mask );

DESCRIPTION

This efun is only available when DEBUGMALLOC and DEBUGMALLOC_EXTENSIONS
are both defined in options.h at driver build time.  The  debugmalloc()
efun will dump information on those chunks of memory allocated by DMAL‐
LOC() and related macros if the mask bitwise and'd  (&)  with  the  tag
supplied  by  the macro (i.e. (mask & tag)) is non-zero.  Read md.c and
config.h in the driver source for more information.
