Are you asking for a comparison of malloc/free versus new/delete or are you wondering about memory allocation in general?

malloc is a means of allocating dynamic memory. there are many uses for dynamic memory allocation, a definition of which can be found with a quick search on google, or even msdn. If you plan to use C/C++ in the future, this is a topic you will have to learn sooner or later and cannot (unless someone has tons of free time) be explained fully in a single post on these forums.
