IMethodMalloc Interface

Provides a method to allocate memory for a new Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) function body.


The IMethodMalloc interface is a simple memory allocator. It allows you to allocate memory, but not to free it.


Method Description
Alloc Method Attempts to allocate a specified amount of memory for a new MSIL function body.


Each allocator is module-specific and ensures that the function body will be at a positive offset from the base of the module. Memory above the base of a module can be precious, so the allocator should be used to allocate memory only for a function body.
