 * @short_description: refcounted wrapper for memory blocks
 * @see_also: #GstBuffer
 *
 * GstMemory is a lightweight refcounted object that wraps a region of memory.
 * They are typically used to manage the data of a #GstBuffer.
 *

 * Memory is usually created by allocators with a gst_memory_allocator_alloc()
 * method call. When NULL is used as the allocator, the default allocator will
 * be used.
 *
 * New allocators can be registered with gst_memory_allocator_register().
 * Allocators are identified by name and can be retrieved with
 * gst_memory_allocator_find().

 * New memory can be created with gst_memory_new_wrapped() that wraps the memory
39
 * allocated elsewhere.

 *
 * Refcounting of the memory block is performed with gst_memory_ref() and
 * gst_memory_unref().
 *
 * The size of the memory can be retrieved and changed with
 * gst_memory_get_sizes() and gst_memory_resize() respectively.
 *
 * Getting access to the data of the memory is performed with gst_memory_map().
 * After the memory access is completed, gst_memory_unmap() should be called.
 *
 * Memory can be copied with gst_memory_copy(), which will returnn a writable
 * copy. gst_memory_share() will create a new memory block that shares the
 * memory with an existing memory block at a custom offset and with a custom
 * size.
 *
 * Memory can be efficiently merged when gst_memory_is_span() returns TRUE and
 * with the function gst_memory_span().
