I am looking for a project which is converting c malloc/realloc to shared_ptr. During my Analysis, I found the issue Can anyone provide me some input how to fix below issue typedef boost::shared_ptr<Employee_t> srdpointer; srdpointer ptr((Employee_t*)malloc(sizeof(Employee_t)),std::ptr_fun(free)); I need to pass the shared pointer which will allocate memory Pointed by the ptr. Something like this. void allocateBlocks(int **ptr, int *cnt)     {         *ptr = (int*)malloc(sizeof(int) * 10);         *cnt = 10;         /*do something*/     }     int main()     {         int *p = NULL;         int count = 0;         allocateBlocks(&p, &count);         /*do something*/         free(p);     } How can I achieve the similar functionality using shared ptr as shown in above code
