*Buffer = AllocateMemory(Size [, Flags])Description
Allocates a contiguous memory area with the specified size in bytes. The new memory area will be cleared and filled with zeros.
Size The size in bytes for the new memory area. Flags (optional) It can be one of the following values:#PB_Memory_NoClear: don't fill the new memory area with zeros. It can help to have faster allocation if the allocated memory is used immediately.
Returns the address of the allocated memory, or zero if the memory cannot be allocated.
FreeMemory() can be used to return the allocated memory back to the system. All the allocated memory areas are automatically freed when the programs ends.
