curl_global_init_mem(3) libcurl Manual curl_global_init_mem(3)

NAME curl_global_init_mem - Global libcurl initialisation with memory call- backs

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 func- tion, 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 sev- erly screw things up for libcurl. Take care!
