Title: METHOD FOR DYNAMIC MEMORY MANAGEMENT
Abstract:
According to the inventive method for dynamic memory management, two different procedures are executed, depending on the priority given to the program part which requests the memory space. If the program part making the request has real time priority, according to a first procedure, a memory block which has previously been occupied is allocated from at least one memory pool to the program part making the request. If the program part making the request has no real time priority, according to a second procedure, an empty memory block which corresponds to a size requested by the program part is selected from a fragment list and a memory block which corresponds to the request is reserved for and allocated to the program part.
