-/**
- * Allocator for custom memory management.
- * 
- * A UCX allocator consists of a pointer to the memory area / pool and four
- * function pointers to memory management functions operating on this memory
- * area / pool. These functions shall behave equivalent to the standard libc
- * functions <code>malloc(), calloc(), realloc()</code> and <code>free()</code>.
- * 
- * The signature of the memory management functions is based on the signature
- * of the respective libc function but each of them takes the pointer to the
- * memory area / pool as first argument.
- * 
- * As the pointer to the memory area / pool can be arbitrarily chosen, any data
- * can be provided to the memory management functions. A UcxMempool is just
- * one example.

- * 
- * When using <code>sstr_t</code>, developers must be full aware of what type

- * accessing the <code>char* ptr</code> directly.

- * The UCX string module provides some common string functions, known from
