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