 * Guarded memory (de)allocation
 *
 *
 * @mainpage MEM - c-style guarded memory allocation
 *
 * @section about About the MEM module
 *
 * MEM provides guarded malloc/calloc calls. All memory is enclosed by
 * pads, to detect out-of-bound writes. All blocks are placed in a
 * linked list, so they remain reachable at all times. There is no
 * back-up in case the linked-list related data is lost.
 *
 * @section issues Known issues with MEM
 *
 * There are currently no known issues with MEM. Note that there is a
 * second intern/ module with MEM_ prefix, for use in c++.
 * 
 * @section dependencies Dependencies
 *
 * - stdlib
 *
 * - stdio
