    memory leak checker program? for windows


    i am writing a c program.want to check if it leaks memory.

    I am compiling and runing on windows platform.Using the visual c++ toolkit compiler or the dev c++ compiler.Find them reliable.

    I want to know is there any way / or any software on the windows platform that would let me check for memory leaks in my c program.

    previously i used bcheck on unix at college.But I want to use a windows based memory leak checker.IF you know of any,do share.
    Thanking you,
    Rahul SK

    Well visual studio has the ability to produce a list of all blocks still allocated by using a debug allocation library.
    Searching for MALLOC_DBG should help.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
