       gnutls_global_set_mem_functions - API function


       #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);


       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.


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

       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.
