39  \brief Allocate \a __size bytes of space in the stack frame of the caller.
40 
41  This temporary space is automatically freed when the function that
42  called alloca() returns to its caller. Avr-libc defines the alloca() as
43  a macro, which is translated into the inlined \c __builtin_alloca()
44  function. The fact that the code is inlined, means that it is impossible
45  to take the address of this function, or to change its behaviour by
46  linking with a different library.
47 
48  \return alloca() returns a pointer to the beginning of the allocated
49  space. If the allocation causes stack overflow, program behaviour is
50  undefined.
51 
52  \warning Avoid use alloca() inside the list of arguments of a function
53  call.
