Question regarding Memory handling

Hello,

I would like to use my own memory allocation functions. Those
functions will work on memory pools with different lifetimes (like
apache does).

There are two pools, one has the same lifetime as the application, the
other is destroyed from time to time. During program startup and
Library inititalisation, memory is taken from the persistent pool,
in the "working loop" memory is taken from the non persistent pool.

So if the Library itself allocates memory while the non persistent
pool is active, it may be gone away later => not good.

My question: Does Libwww allacote memory (after initialisation) that
is not freed f.e. for caching purposes?

I hope you understand the problem :-)

Thanks in advance

Olaf
