Hi,
I'm writing my CS thesis about various memory allocator. I found various re=
sources about jemalloc but I think some of these are old. I wanted to kindl=
y ask if you could give me some information regarding malloc()/free()/reall=
oc().
I already contacted the developers on the official gitter and they provided=
 me useful resources but I was wondering since this allocator is also used =
on FreeBSD (since this is practically where it was born), if someone more e=
xperienced than me could give me some explanations regarding the implementa=
tion of these functions.
Also, any anecdotes about the history of this allocator and FreeBSD would b=
e greatly appreciated.

Greetings,

Valerio Besozzi
