This is part of Family API which allow to create dual-os version of program runs under OS/2 and DOS
Note: This is legacy API call. It is recommended to use 32-bit equivalent
This call suballocates portions of a segment allocated by DosAllocSeg or DosAllocShrSeg, and initialized by DosSubSet.
DosSubAlloc (SegSelector, BlockOffset, Size)
rc (USHORT) - return
Return code descriptions are:
- 0 NO_ERROR
- 311 ERROR_DOSSUB_NOMEM
- 313 ERROR_DOSSUB_BADSIZE
Before a segment allocated by DosAllocSeg or DosAllocShrSeg can be suballocated, it must first be initialized for suballocation by a call to DosSubSet.
Allocation size must be a multiple of four bytes. Otherwise, it is rounded up to a multiple of four bytes. The maximum value for the size parameter is the size that was set with DosSubSet minus 8. Note that no paragraph (16-byte) alignment is required; all requests are serviced on a byte alignment basis.
A suballocated block of memory in a suballocated segment is freed by a call to DosSubFree.
