DrMemory: memory debugger tool for Windows (and Linux)

Post by mar » Tue Jan 22, 2013 9:45 am

Hi,
unless you already know, there's a tool named Dr. Memory (as was pointed out to me), which (unlike Valgrind) works in Windows too.
I think it's awesome - I really missed a Valgrind-like tool a lot!!
The link is here: http://www.drmemory.org/
It's free and open source.
Hope it helps.

From the website:

Dr. Memory currently targets 32-bit applications only.

That is a nonstarter for me.
Capital punishment would be more effective as a preventive measure if it were administered prior to the crime.

Actually, I could debug in 32 bit Komodo and it would probably do the job, so maybe I spoke too soon.
