Memory manager replacement using the C memory manager
The cmem memory manager sets the system units memory manager to a C-based memory manager: all memory management calls are shunted through to the C memory manager, using Malloc, Free and ReAlloc. For this reason, the cmem unit should be the first unit of the uses clause of the program.
The unit also offers the C memory calls directly as external declarations from the C library, but it is recommended to use the normal FPC routines for this.
Obviously, including this unit links your program to the C library.
