       The buffer library handles simple character arrays. Buffers are used for various purposes
       in the library, most notably memory BIOs.

       BUF_MEM_new() allocates a new buffer of zero size.

       BUF_MEM_free() frees up an already existing buffer. The data is zeroed before freeing up
       in case the buffer contains sensitive data.

       BUF_MEM_grow() changes the size of an already existing buffer to len. Any data already in
       the buffer is preserved if it increases in size.

       BUF_strdup(), BUF_strndup(), BUF_memdup(), BUF_strlcpy() and BUF_strlcat() are equivalents
       of the standard C library functions. The dup() functions use OPENSSL_malloc() underneath
       and so should be used in preference to the standard library for memory leak checking or
       replacing the malloc() function.

       Memory allocated from these functions should be freed up using the OPENSSL_free()

       BUF_strndup makes the explicit guarantee that it will never read past the first siz bytes
       of str.

       BUF_MEM_new() returns the buffer or NULL on error.

       BUF_MEM_free() has no return value.

       BUF_MEM_grow() returns zero on error or the new size (i.e. len).


       BUF_MEM_new(), BUF_MEM_free() and BUF_MEM_grow() are available in all versions of SSLeay
       and OpenSSL. BUF_strdup() was added in SSLeay 0.8.
