9     Valgrind is a GPL'd tool to help you find memory-management problems
10     in your programs. When a program is run under Valgrind's supervision,
11     all reads and writes of memory are checked, and calls to
12     malloc/new/free/delete are intercepted. As a result, Valgrind can
13     detect problems such as
14    
15     - Use of uninitialised memory
16     - Reading/writing memory after it has been free'd
17     - Reading/writing off the end of malloc'd blocks
18     - Reading/writing inappropriate areas on the stack
19     - Memory leaks -- where pointers to malloc'd blocks are lost forever
20     - Passing of uninitialised and/or unaddressible memory to system calls
21     - Mismatched use of malloc/new/new [] vs free/delete/delete []
22     - Some abuses of the POSIX Pthreads API
