=head1 NAME
ASN1_OBJECT_new, ASN1_OBJECT_free - object allocation functions
#include <openssl/asn1.h>
void ASN1_OBJECT_free(ASN1_OBJECT *a);
The B<ASN1_OBJECT> allocation routines, allocate and free an
B<ASN1_OBJECT> structure, which represents an ASN1 OBJECT IDENTIFIER.
ASN1_OBJECT_new() allocates and initializes an B<ASN1_OBJECT> structure.
ASN1_OBJECT_free() frees up the B<ASN1_OBJECT> structure I<a>.
If I<a> is NULL, nothing is done.
=head1 NOTES
Although ASN1_OBJECT_new() allocates a new B<ASN1_OBJECT> structure it
is almost never used in applications. The ASN1 object utility functions
such as OBJ_nid2obj() are used instead.
If the allocation fails, ASN1_OBJECT_new() returns NULL and sets an error
code that can be obtained by L<ERR_get_error(3)>.
Otherwise it returns a pointer to the newly allocated structure.
ASN1_OBJECT_free() returns no value.
