Rust C++ New

Build status

This Rust crate maps the C++ new/delete/new[]/delete[] operators via extern "C" functions into Rust's allocators.

How to Use

Just include the crate like:

extern crate cpp_new;

And it'll remap the C++ new/delete to Rust's global allcators.

Where to Use

Where you want to use this is if you have some pre-existing C++ library that you do not control, and you want to ensure the allocations being done in the library are being tracked by Rust's global allocator.
