That was interesting.

Apparently that is undefined so implementation dependent.

I wonder why. I suspect some memory allocators would have trouble with allocating an empty block so perhaps that is the reason to allow null.

What is additionally interesting was that I was thinking it would return just a pointer to the heap block tracker. That is so free still works.

But of course it could actually return real space. So for example if the allocator just always sizes up to a block (say 16 bytes) it might be valid space.
