I'm pretty sure that the answer to this is "no", but: Is there any relationship between the address returned by malloc(3) and the physical address of the block of RAM? I'm almost positive that there isn't - after all, there's not much chance of a block being swapped out and back in to the same location - but I'm curious. If I'm correct and there is no correlation, then my next question is: If a identical programs (same data, different files) are launched at the same time so that each copy in memory is identical, and they all call malloc(some_constant), do they all get the same return address from malloc() or do they get different answers? -- Kirk Strauser In Googlis non est, ergo non est.
