/* These routines allocate space for an object. The assumption is
that the object will want to allocate space as it goes along, but
will never want to free any particular block. There is a function
to free a block, which also frees all more recently allocated
blocks. There is also a function to free all the allocated space.
This is essentially a specialization of obstacks. The main
difference is that a block may not be allocated a bit at a time.
Another difference is that these routines are always built on top
of malloc, and always pass an malloc failure back to the caller,
unlike more recent versions of obstacks. */
/* This is what an objalloc structure looks like. Callers should not
refer to these fields, nor should they allocate these structure
themselves. Instead, they should only create them via
objalloc_init, and only access them via the functions and macros
listed below. The structure is only defined here so that we can
access it via macros. */
