recycle.h

/*
--------------------------------------------------------------------
By Bob Jenkins, September 1996.  recycle.h
You may use this code in any way you wish, and it is free.  No warranty.

This manages memory for commonly-allocated structures.
It allocates RESTART to REMAX items at a time.
Timings have shown that, if malloc is used for every new structure,
  malloc will consume about 90% of the time in a program.  This
  module cuts down the number of mallocs by an order of magnitude.
This also decreases memory fragmentation, and freeing all structures
  only requires freeing the root.
