Accessing and customizing the memory allocator

Let's start by defining a custom function for allocations performed using the 'new' operator:

void* myCustomNew( size_t size )
  // Here, set your own memory management code!
  return NULL;

Then, we can access the RED::MemoryAllocator and replace the current function by our new function:

// The memory allocator is a singleton:
RED::MemoryAllocator& mal = RED::MemoryAllocator::Get();

// Let's override the 'new' method:
mal.SetCustomNew( myCustomNew );

For simplicity, we do only replace one single memory function in the example above. To fully customize the memory management in REDsdk, all functions defined in the RED::MemoryAllocator class should be replaced by the application.
