Hi all, Say you're given a dump file from a process which has some memory leaks (and the leaked objects are in the dump file). Your debugger has a garbage collection algorithm which will show you all orphaned blocks in the process, this gives you the raw pointer values of the leaked objects. However, the objects don't have any virtual functions so there is no vftable from which you can infer the type. How would you go about finding the type of the object? Is it even possible? Note: RTTI is enabled. Thanks.
