SYNOPSYS

       void autfreeblock( Pointer )
          char ∗ Pointer;

PARAMETERS
       Pointer             Pointer to be given back to the system

DESCRIPTION
       autfreeblock frees a pointer. It is now a day just an encapsulation of
       the system free function, but may evolve to a special allocator in the
       future. Its use is strongly encouraged.

RETURN VALUE
       autfreeblock returns nothing.

EXAMPLE
       #include "aut101.h"
         char ∗Pointer;
         Pointer = autallocblock( 1024 );
         ...
         autfreeblock( Pointer );
