Memory Leaking

Recommended Posts

cippyboy    223
In the TTT demo of James Trotter I saw a file containing memory leaking,''memoryleaks.log'' and I thought he personally made the log(manually) and I browsed the source and didn`t found anything to prove that . Therefore I guess it`s something that MSVC++ (6) can generate for you right ? Can anyone tell me what should I do to generate that file ? Thanks in advance

I would recommend you to use a memory manager. I used the mmgr memory manager by Paul Nettle - its excellent.

VC6 has no built-in facility for creating a log file of this nature, but it does have a built-in facility for detecting memory leaks. Search MSDN for an article entitled 'Detecting and Isolating Memory Leaks Using Microsoft Visual C++', or click here.

An addendum - If you're using Windows 2K or XP, the OS's performance monitor is an excellent tool for monitoring memory/resource consumption and locating leaks. See this article.

Yes, that was Paul Nettle's memory manager. It's really excellent! Although I've had a couple of problems with it... It doesn't like iostream much, and tends to crash when I include the header... I think it does the same with a couple of STL objects, but I'm not sure.

Hehe, well I really didn't have time to fix that little problem , so please forgive me..
