The Pt::Allocator interface can be used to optimize or customize allocation strategies. Two allocators are provided, which can be approached by the Allocator interface, a pool based allocator and a page based allocator. A pool based allocator is beneficial in all cases where many small objects of small sizes are created. This is for example used to optimize memory usage during serialization. The page based allocator simply places data consecutively in memory and frees the whole block when its no longer in use. This is useful in situations where chunks of memory or objects are created and destroyed at the same time.
