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