       rle_row_alloc - Allocate scanline memory for rle_putrow or rle_getrow.
       rle_row_free - Free scanline memory allocated by rle_row_alloc.

       #include <rle.h>

       rle_row_alloc( the_hdr, scanp )
       rle_hdr * the_hdr;
       rle_pixel *** scanp;

       rle_row_free( the_hdr, scanp )
       rle_hdr * the_hdr;
       rle_pixel ** scanp;

       The  function  rle_row_alloc  is provided to make it easier to allocate
       storage for use by the RLE functions.  It examines the  the_hdr	struc‐
       ture  provided  and  returns  (via  its other argument) newly allocated
       space suitable for reading from or writing to an RLE file described  by
       the  the_hdr  structure.	  rle_row_alloc	 allocates  (the_hdr→xmax + 1)
       bytes for each scanline, to allow for  rle_getrow  usage.   Only	 those
       rows enabled by the bit-map in the_hdr will have memory allocated.

       To  free	 memory	 allocated by rle_row_alloc(3), call rle_row_free with
       the pointer to the allocated storage.

       rle_hdr(3), rle_getrow(3), rle_putrow(3), librle(3), RLE(5).
