Some of the references warn against its use.

So far as I can tell, it's based upon usage and gotcha's that are common in C - in other words, C is for grownup who take responsibility for their actions.

Simply put - know what you're doing when you do it. Don't free() it - well, duh! That's the point of using it. Beware of stack overflows. Always keep your wits about you with memory usage. Don't use in recursive functions or loops. In a loop, index the allocations into an array of pointers, or, if you want to reuse the same one, allocate it before the loop . . . just like the other memory functions.

Seems standard enough - for the grownups in the room
