ASPRINTF(3)                         Linux Programmer's Manual                         ASPRINTF(3)

       asprintf, vasprintf - print to allocated string

       #define _GNU_SOURCE         /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
       #include <stdio.h>

       int asprintf(char **strp, const char *fmt, ...);

       int vasprintf(char **strp, const char *fmt, va_list ap);

       The functions asprintf() and vasprintf() are analogs of sprintf(3) and vsprintf(3), except
       that they allocate a string large enough to hold the output including the terminating null
       byte  ('\0'),  and  return a pointer to it via the first argument.  This pointer should be
       passed to free(3) to release the allocated storage when it is no longer needed.

       When successful, these functions return the number of bytes printed, just like sprintf(3).
       If  memory  allocation  wasn't  possible, or some other error occurs, these functions will
       return -1, and the contents of strp is undefined.

       These functions are GNU extensions, not in C or POSIX.   They  are  also  available  under
       *BSD.  The FreeBSD implementation sets strp to NULL on error.
