       gnutls_global_set_mem_functions - set the memory allocation functions


       #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);


       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


       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.
