We always like to buy lunch for our clients, and we like them to lunch well. By the time everything is factored in, depen...

malloc and free are C++/C language standard library functions, while new/delete are operator of C++. They can be used to allocate dynamic memory and free memory in C++ programs malloc/free can not meet the requirements of dynamic objects creation. Object needs to call the constructor to initialize the object when creating, the object needs to call the destructor before it is destroyed  Since malloc() and free() are library functions rather than operators, the compiler has no control permiss...
