    If nothing you call uses dynamic memory, then you won't get memory leaks. However, if you are using a library of some sort, and don't release it's resources (memory included) when you should, it could leak that way. That is, it could be hiding the use of dynamic memory behind its interface.
    Prove you can code in C++ or C# at TopCoder, referrer rrenaud
