Base Library functions are essential for primary tasks such as memory allocation and functions that manage the performance of other library functions.
This section is organized as follows.
Within the section, the Basic Concepts chapter provides overview information related to the functions in the library, and subsequent chapters provide detailed descriptions of library functions that perform operations of the same kind.
Each detailed description consists of a Function Name followed by a short description, a Synopsis of the function syntax, a list of function Parameters, a detailed Description of the function, and a list of Return Values.
When a function is optimized for one or more technologies, a list of Supported Technologies is provided after the short description.
The Function Quick Reference provides an index and snapshot view of function optimizations.
