When the variables are no longer required, the space which was allocated to them by calloc should be returned to the system. This is done by,
free( date_pointer );
Other C calls associated with memory are,
alloc allocate a block of memory from the heap malloc allocate a block of memory, do not zero out zero zero a section of memory blockmove move bytes from one location to another
Other routines may be included in the particular version of the compiler you may have, ie, for MS-DOS v3.0,
memccpy copies characters from one buffer to another memchr returns a pointer to the 1st occurrence of a designated character searched for memcmp compares a specified number of characters memcpy copies a specified number of characters memset initialise a specified number of bytes with a given character movedata copies characters
