NAME

firestring_realloc - realloc(3) with internal result checking  

SYNOPSIS

#include <firestring.h>
-lfirestring

void *firestring_realloc(void *old, const size_t new)  

DESCRIPTION

firestring_realloc() acts exactly like realloc(3) except that it detects realloc failures, prints an error and exit(3) with exit status EXIT_FAILURE. In most programs, realloc failures are unrecoverable, and this is the preferred behaviour.  

RETURN VALUE

If firestring_realloc() returns, it always returns a string of new bytes containing the data from old at the beginning. It never returns NULL.
