Are all these possible ways to allocate memory relying on the same memory
allocation policy (once fixed size is a special case of variable size)?
What the difference when calling malloc or memvar/memfixed?

Is malloc just a eCos predefined variable memory pool?

Cristiano.

PS: I know I could look into the code and I'm actually going to do that
but for the moment it suffices for me get a quick clarification.
