* Memory Allocation and C     How to get different kinds of allocation in C.
* Unconstrained Allocation    The `malloc' facility allows fully general
 		 		 dynamic allocation.
* Allocation Debugging        Finding memory leaks and not freed memory.
* Obstacks                    Obstacks are less general than malloc
 				 but more efficient and convenient.
* Variable Size Automatic     Allocation of variable-sized blocks
 				 of automatic storage that are freed when the
 				 calling function returns.
