#include <allegro.h>

char *ustrdup(const char *src)

DESCRIPTION

This functions copies the null-terminated string `src' into a newly allocated area of memory, effectively duplicating it. Example:

   void manipulate_string(const char *input_string)
   {
      char *temp_buffer = ustrdup(input_string);
      /* Now we can modify temp_buffer */
      ...

RETURN VALUE

Returns the newly allocated string. This memory must be freed by the caller. Returns NULL if it cannot allocate space for the duplicated string.
