H_??? The hunk manages the entire memory block given to quake. It must be
contiguous. Memory can be allocated from either the low or high end in a
stack fashion. The only way memory is released is by resetting one of the
Hunk allocations should be given a name, so the Hunk_Print () function
can display usage.
Hunk allocations are guaranteed to be 16 byte aligned.
The video buffers are allocated high to avoid leaving a hole underneath
server allocations when changing to a higher video mode.
Z_??? Zone memory functions used for small, dynamic allocations like text
strings from command input. There is only about 48K for it, allocated at
the very bottom of the hunk.
Cache_??? Cache memory is for objects that can be dynamically loaded and
can usefully stay persistant between levels. The size of the cache
fluctuates from level to level.
To allocate a cachable object
Temp_??? Temp memory is used for file loading and surface caching. The size
of the cache memory is adjusted so that there is a minimum of 512k remaining
for temp memory.
