Visual Leak Detector

Post by toxicBunny » Thu Nov 10, 2005 7:31 pm

I don't know if anyone has seen this or is interested, but it helped me...

This link is for the Visual Leak Detector library for use with Visual Studio (version 6 and up). You place a few libraries in the Visual Studio lib directory and include a header file before your main() or IMPLEMENT_APP() entry. It works a lot better than Microsoft's built-in leak detection and helped me track down some strange leaks dealing with virtual destructors. Plus, it's free.

There's no problem with using GPL'ed _tools_ to develop your commercial application. For example commercial application are using gcc just fine to compile their product. The questions come if you want to use it as a tool included with your application, or similar cases.
Compilers: gcc-3.3.6, gcc-3.4.5, gcc-4.0.2, gcc-4.1.0 and MSVC6
OS's: Gentoo Linux, WinXP; WX: CVS HEAD
