Changes the size of a previously allocated memory block.

||//The size of the memory block in bytes
[in] Points to the memory block to be reallocated. It can be a NULL pointer,
as discussed in the following Comments section.
[in] Specifies the size of the memory block (in bytes) to be reallocated. It
can be zero, as discussed in the following remarks.
Reallocated memory block
Memory block successfully reallocated.
Insufficient memory or cb
is zero and pv
is not NULL.
The initial contents of the returned memory block are undefined - there is no
guarantee that the block has been initialized, so you should initialize it in
your code. The allocated block may be larger than cb
bytes because of the space required for alignment and for maintenance
argument points to the beginning of the memory block. If pv
is NULL, IMalloc::Realloc
allocates a new memory block in the same way as IMalloc::Alloc
. If pv
is not NULL, it should be a pointer returned by a prior call to IMalloc::Alloc
argument specifies the size (in bytes) of the new block. The contents of the
block are unchanged up to the shorter of the new and old sizes, although the
new block can be in a different location. Because the new block can be in a
different memory location, the pointer returned by IMalloc::Realloc
is not guaranteed to be the pointer passed through the pv
argument. If pv
is not NULL and cb
is zero, then the memory pointed to by pv
returns a void pointer to the reallocated (and possibly moved) memory block.
The return value is NULL if the size is zero and the buffer argument is not
NULL, or if there is not enough memory available to expand the block to the given
size. In the first case, the original block is freed; in the second, the
original block is unchanged.
The storage space pointed to by the return value is guaranteed to be suitably
aligned for storage of any type of object. To get a pointer to a type other
, use a type cast on the return value.
