Having done some interaction with C libs IMHO the best option is not to free the memory in pascal at all but doing it with the provided C functions (if the lib does not do the freeing automatic, that is).

In cases like Graemes I always used leledumbos approach which never failed me.

  PAtom = ^TAtom;
  PPAtom = ^PAtom;

This gives you access to the array but the memory management is done entirely by the lib/C-code.
