 NAME
      idn_free - API function

 SYNOPSIS
      #include <idn.h>

      void idn_free(void * ptr);

 ARGUMENTS
      void * ptr  memory region to deallocate, or NULL.

 DESCRIPTION
      Deallocates memory region by calling free().  If  ptr is NULL no
      operation is performed.

      Normally applications de-allocate strings allocated by libidn by
      calling free() directly.  Under Windows, different parts of the same
      application may use different heap memory, and then it is important to
      deallocate memory allocated within the same module that allocated it.
      This function makes that possible.
