A memory leak detection tool. Basically, you add a header file to your souce code files, and compile with MEMWATCH defined or not. The header file MEMWATCH.H contains detailed instructions. This is a list of some of the features present in version 2.71:
- Logging to file or user function using TRACE() macro
- Fault tolerant, can repair it’s own data structures
- Detects double-frees and erroneous free’s
- Detects unfreed memory
- Detects overflow and underflow to memory buffers
- Can set maximum allowed memory to allocate, to stress-test app
- ASSERT(expr) and VERIFY(expr) macros
- Can detect wild pointer writes
- Support for OS specific address validation to avoid GP’s (segmentation faults)
- Collects allocation statistics on application, module or line level
- Rudimentary support for threads (see FAQ for details)
- Rudimentary support for C++ (disabled by default, use with care!)
