Function std.experimental.allocator.common.reallocate

The default reallocate function first attempts to use expand. If Allocator.expand is not defined or returns false, reallocate allocates a new block of memory of appropriate size and copies data from the old block to the new block. Finally, if Allocator defines deallocate, reallocate uses it to free the old memory block.

bool reallocate(Allocator) (
  ref Allocator a,
  ref void[] b,
  size_t s

reallocate does not attempt to use Allocator.reallocate even if defined. This is deliberate so allocators may use it internally within their own implementation of reallocate.
