NAME

curl_global_init_mem - Global libcurl initialisation with memory callbacks

Description

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_global_init_mem(long  flags, 

 curl_malloc_callback  m, 

 curl_free_callback  f, 

 curl_realloc_callback  r, 

 curl_strdup_callback  s, 

 curl_calloc_callback  c ); 

DESCRIPTION

This function works exactly as curl_global_init(3) with one addition: it allows the application to set callbacks to replace the otherwise used internal memory functions.

This man page only adds documentation for the callbacks, see the curl_global_init(3) man page for all the rest. When you use this function, all callback arguments must be set to valid function pointers.

The prototypes for the given callbacks should match these:
void *malloc_callback(size_t size); To replace malloc()
void free_callback(void *ptr); To replace free()
void *realloc_callback(void *ptr, size_t size); To replace realloc()
char *strdup_callback(const char *str); To replace strdup()
void *calloc_callback(size_t nmemb, size_t size); To replace calloc()

CAUTION

Manipulating these gives considerable powers to the application to severly screw things up for libcurl. Take care!
