Hello community, some time ago, I evaluated a software called Boundschecker developed by Numega. For those of you who don''t know thi fine product: Boundschecker is a tool which helps you to find memory leaks of any kind. It links itself against your program and checks your code in runtime like Big Brother. Whenever something happens which is not supposed to happen, it tells you so and creates a nice statistic including memory usage, detected leaks, etc. Everytime something *does* go worng, it gives the possibility of going directly to the line of code which causes the problem and assist you in solving the problem. Numega also developed a profiler working similar. It''s called Devpartner Profiler which also has a Community Edition that is free of charge for non-commercial use. What I am wondering is: Are there any Open Source or Freeware tools doing pretty much the same? Greetings, Chris.
