NAME
       gnutls_global_set_mem_functions - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/compat.h>

       void gnutls_global_set_mem_functions(gnutls_alloc_function alloc_func,
       gnutls_alloc_function secure_alloc_func, gnutls_is_secure_function
       is_secure_func, gnutls_realloc_function realloc_func,
       gnutls_free_function free_func);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_alloc_function alloc_func
                   it's the default memory allocation function. Like malloc().

       gnutls_alloc_function secure_alloc_func
                   This is the memory allocation function that will be used for
                   sensitive data.

       gnutls_is_secure_function is_secure_func
                   a function that returns 0 if the memory given is not secure.
                   May be NULL.

       gnutls_realloc_function realloc_func
                   A realloc function

       gnutls_free_function free_func
                   The function that frees allocated data. Must accept a NULL
                   pointer.

DEPRECATED
       since 3.3.0 it is no longer possible to replace the internally used
       memory allocation functions

       This is the function where you set the memory allocation functions gnutls
       is going to use. By default the libc's allocation functions (malloc(),
       free()), are used by gnutls, to allocate both sensitive and not sensitive
       data.  This function is provided to set the memory allocation functions
       to something other than the defaults

       This function must be called before gnutls_global_init() is called.  This
       function is not thread safe.
