    Wink is there a codeguard in other IDE/Compilers aside from BCB?

    Hello!

    I am new here. I am doing some development using Borland C++ and this forums provides a good help and information for me.

    I am searching for quite a while now and, i would just like to ask if it is only Borland C++ builder has the functionality of a codeguard? wherein you would see an error when you forget to delete a dynamic memory allocation. example...

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    int main(){
        char * x = new char(); //would cause codeguard error because x is not deleted.
        return 0;
    }
    i tried looking on IDE/Compilers of Microsoft, Dev Cpp(MinGW). as this is the more popular ones but they proved that they don't have such functionality? do they have some alternatives? i just would like to do a little programming at home so it needs to be free and i could not afford to have a borland builder IDE.

    Thanks!

    Well Visual Studio has the capability to detect memory leaks

    hmm thanks for the link..

    it is quite different than i'm used to in borland but i think this would work fine...

    how about devCpp(minGW) would they also have memory leak detection?
