ANSI C: force malloc to return address with specific range.


Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a way to force malloc() to return address in a specific range (say 0x80000 or something else), in addition I need a way to mask the addresses returned from malloc to be divided by 32.

Anyone got any idea how to do it?

Thanks for your help.
Neuzen.

You can not do this using ansi C. You could try using mmap.

You may write your own wrapper to malloc. Inside simply malloc more (+32 octets for instance) and return the pointer that fits the goal. You'll have your own free(), calloc() and other stuff if you use it.
