Safely remove malloc in SystemC

Recommended Posts

We have discovered C-style dynamic memory allocation in following files:





However, dynamic memory allocation for other C++ files have been done using C++ style new/delete.
Our question: Can we replace them safely with new/delete or we will see some surprises ?
In fact it seems they are legacy codes taken from somewhere and we can replace them safely. Example (utils/sc_report.cpp)


static char empty_str[] = "";
static inline char * empty_dup(const char * p)
    if ( p && *p )
        char* result;
        result = (char*)malloc(strlen(p)+1); // Very very legacy C style
        strcpy(result, p);
        return result;
        return empty_str;
