Read carefully.  malloc would be a reserved identifier.  Whether there
actually exists any routine by that name, and if so whether it has the
same semantics, is not specified (at least not by what the poster you
replied to posted, though by analogy to the str* and mem* functions one
could take it as saying it would have to either not exist or work the
same way).  But it mustn't be used as a name for "user" code.
