Description

GetMemory allocates a memory block.

GetMemory allocates a block of the given Size on the heap, and returns the address of this memory. The bytes of the allocated buffer are not set to zero. To dispose of the buffer, use FreeMemory. If there is not enough memory available to allocate the block, an EOutOfMemory exception is raised.

If the memory needs to be zero-initialized, you can use AllocMem.

Note: GetMemory is the C++ compatible version of GetMem.
