+=head1 NAME
+
+ASN1_OBJECT_new, ASN1_OBJECT_free, - object allocation functions
+
+=head1 SYNOPSIS
+
+ ASN1_OBJECT *ASN1_OBJECT_new(void);
+ void ASN1_OBJECT_free(ASN1_OBJECT *a);
+
+=head1 DESCRIPTION
+
+The ASN1_OBJECT allocation routines, allocate and free an
+ASN1_OBJECT structure, which represents an ASN1 OBJECT IDENTIFIER.
+
+ASN1_OBJECT_new() allocates and initializes a ASN1_OBJECT structure.
+
+ASN1_OBJECT_free() frees up the B<ASN1_OBJECT> structure B<a>.
+
+=head1 NOTES
+
+Although ASN1_OBJECT_new() allocates a new ASN1_OBJECT structure it
+is almost never used in applications. The ASN1 object utility functions
+such as OBJ_nid2obj() are used instead.
+
+=head1 RETURN VALUES
+
+If the allocation fails, ASN1_OBJECT_new() returns B<NULL> and sets an error
+code that can be obtained by L<ERR_get_error(3)|ERR_get_error(3)>.
+Otherwise it returns a pointer to the newly allocated structure.
+
+ASN1_OBJECT_free() returns no value.
+
+=head1 SEE ALSO
+
+L<ERR_get_error(3)|ERR_get_error(3)>, L<d2i_ASN1_OBJECT(3)|d2i_ASN1_OBJECT(3)>
+
+=head1 HISTORY
+
+ASN1_OBJECT_new() and ASN1_OBJECT_free() are available in all versions of SSLeay and OpenSSL.
