I''m curious what everyone is using to do profiling and other debugging ''stuff''? I know Rational/IBM developed Purify and there are some other professional tools for profiling. What are you guys using and what do you recommend? Thanks! -GBone

Why has no-one mentioned MessageBox() or OutputDebugString()?
Sure, they''re not portable, but for printing debug info they work fine!

Oh, and VC++ integrated debugger. I''ve never figured out the integrated profiler, though - I got it to give me some numbers but iirc they weren''t very useful numbers.

30day trial of VTune expired for me, so nothing at the momment. At least, besides the typical MSDev stuff: OutputDebugString(), out putting to a log file, code implementation of a memmory manager/watcher, debug window, etc.
