copylist, copylist64 --
copy a file into memory
cc [flag . . . ] file . . . -lgen [library] . . .
char copylist(const char filenm, off_t szptr);
char copylist64(const char filenm, off64_t szptr);
copylist copies a list of items from a file into freshly allocated memory,
replacing new-lines with null characters.
It expects two arguments: a pointer filenm to the name of the file to be
copied, and a pointer szptr to a variable where the size of the file will be stored.
Upon success, copylist returns a pointer to the memory allocated.
Otherwise it returns NULL if it has trouble finding the file,
calling malloc, or opening the file.
Considerations for large file support
copylist64 supports large files, but is otherwise identical
For details on programming for large file capable applications, see
