    PHP Code:
    char *str;

    str = (char *)malloc(10); // str now points to a block of 10 bytes (error check this)

    free(str); // Free the memory

    str NULL// So we don't accidently cause a crash by accessing memory that we free'd 

      __               &n bsp;      ___ & nbsp;       &nb sp;       &nbsp ;    
     /\ \  __    &nbs p;           /\_ \      &nbsp ;        & nbsp;     
     \_\ \/\_\  ____     _ __\//\ \    __  __&n bsp;    __   
     /'_` \/\ \/\_ ,`\  / __`\\ \ \  /\ \/\ \  /'__`\ 
    /\ \_\ \ \ \/_/  /_/\ \_\ \\_\ \_\ \ \_/ |/\  __/ 
    \ \___,_\ \_\/\____\ \____//\____\\ \___/ \ \____\

            &n bsp; I have a BAD figlet& nbsp;addiction.
