* Nasty internal details ahead...
* File curl_memory.h must be included by _all_ *.c source files
* that use memory related functions strdup, malloc, calloc, realloc
* or free, and given source file is used to build libcurl library.
* It should be included immediately before memdebug.h as the last files
* included to avoid undesired interaction with other memory function
* headers in dependent libraries.
* There is nearly no exception to above rule. All libcurl source
* files in 'lib' subdirectory as well as those living deep inside
* 'packages' subdirectories and linked together in order to build
* libcurl library shall follow it.
* File lib/strdup.c is an exception, given that it provides a strdup
* clone implementation while using malloc. Extra care needed inside
* this one. TODO: revisit this paragraph and related code.
* The need for curl_memory.h inclusion is due to libcurl's feature
* of allowing library user to provide memory replacement functions,
* memory callbacks, at runtime with curl_global_init_mem()
* Any *.c source file used to build libcurl library that does not
* include curl_memory.h and uses any memory function of the five
* mentioned above will compile without any indication, but it will
* trigger weird memory related issues at runtime.
* OTOH some source files from 'lib' subdirectory may additionally be
* used directly as source code when using some curlx_ functions by
* third party programs that don't even use libcurl at all. When using
* these source files in this way it is necessary these are compiled
* with CURLX_NO_MEMORY_CALLBACKS defined, in order to ensure that no
* attempt of calling libcurl's memory callbacks is done from code
* which can not use this machinery.
* Notice that libcurl's 'memory tracking' system works chaining into
* the memory callback machinery. This implies that when compiling
* 'lib' source files with CURLX_NO_MEMORY_CALLBACKS defined this file
* disengages usage of libcurl's 'memory tracking' system, defining
* MEMDEBUG_NODEFINES and overriding CURLDEBUG purpose.
* CURLX_NO_MEMORY_CALLBACKS takes precedence over CURLDEBUG. This is
* done in order to allow building a 'memory tracking' enabled libcurl
* and at the same time allow building programs which do not use it.
* Programs and libraries in 'tests' subdirectories have specific
* purposes and needs, and as such each one will use whatever fits
* best, depending additionally wether it links with libcurl or not.
* Caveat emptor. Proper curlx_* separation is a work in progress
* the same as CURLX_NO_MEMORY_CALLBACKS usage, some adjustments may
* still be required. IOW don't use them yet, there are sharp edges.
