correct way to allocate memory below the entry point?

Post by [nuke] » Sun Feb 10, 2008 8:49 am

What would be the correct way to allocate memory below the entry point? say if i'm using application that needs a high entry point for a loader, but need to allocate memory?

I have been using a fixed low memory address, but it would be nice to be able to know how to do this so can correctly allocate and free memory nicely :)

Is there any reason why you want to worry about allocating the memory "nicely"? libogc apps manage their own memory pool so really it doesn't matter how you allocate things in a launcher.

Personally I'd tend to just load the new app being launched straight to where it's supposed to go & pass control to it. Not really sure a launcher needs to be more complex than that.
