Hi Ppl!

I have to use a lot of memory (over 128 meg) in an addon. The addon has to support Win and Mac OS. I found details of a built-in memory manager in GSRoot addon kit docs ( \API Development Kit XXXXXX\Documentation\MSDN\GSRoot\GSRoot.chm ). The problem is, the VS solution cannot locate BMInit(). Is it in a namespace somewhere?

Question2: Do I have to use BMInit()? There are good old malloc() / free(). Are they unreliable in this environment?
