Foreign.ForeignPtr.Compat

Synopsis

# Documentation

Advances the given address by the given offset in bytes.

The new ForeignPtr shares the finalizer of the original, equivalent from a finalization standpoint to just creating another reference to the original. That is, the finalizer will not be called before the new ForeignPtr is unreachable, nor will it be called an additional time due to this call, and the finalizer will be called with the same address that it would have had this call not happened, *not* the new address.

Since: base-4.10.0.0
