Description

AllocMem allocates a memory block and initializes each byte to zero.

AllocMem allocates a block of the given Size on the heap, and returns the address of this memory. Each byte in the allocated buffer is set to zero. To dispose of the buffer, use FreeMem. If there is not enough memory available to allocate the block, an EOutOfMemory exception is raised.

Note: If the memory does not need to be zero-initialized, use GetMem instead.
