I've been googling around, searching for methods of tracking memory leaks. Right now, I use some special methods found in assert.h in the crt when I allocate/deallocate memory.
I tried searching for an external program* that can check for memory leaks, and the problem isn't that I can't find anything, it's that I have found too many things. I was wondering what is considered, in general, to be the better software for tracking memory leaks.
I am in Windows XP right now, and if it is pertinent I primarily still use Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 as my development environment.
*I searched at download.com, and google, for 'memory leak', 'memory leak tracker', 'C++ memory leak tracker' and similar terms. Each turned up approximately a bazillion hits for software and/or methods for tracking memory leaks.
