NAME

gnutls_global_set_mem_functions - set the memory allocation functions  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/gnutls.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.
 

DESCRIPTION

This is the function were 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 (ie the gcrypt allocation functions).

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