Author: David Duncan Ross Palmer
Other libraries like this: mpatrol, dmalloc
Description: This is a memory manager for C programmers, for full
details read the extensive documentation.
Version 1.2.0 is a stable release.
DPCRTLMM is now available under a BSD-style license, rather than the GNU General Public License.
The library incorporates these features:
- Ability to separate out blocks of memory into arrays, one array per module is nice
- Ability to recover the size of a block so one doesn't have to store it in the program
- Lockable blocks so that releasing them later will cause traps
- Common pointer mistakes such as releasing unowned memory are eliminated
- Memory leak reports
- Complete log of all usage
- Hooking of almost all operations so the program may preview activity
- Ability to determine if a pointer is invalid BEFORE it is used
- Unlimited number of hooks per event default=32 (requires rebuild)
- An unlimited (in theory) number of blocks can be allocated
- Unlimited block arrays (modules) per program, default=512 (requires rebuild)
- Information about every block allocated and it's owner
- Fine/line tracing (C only)
- Garbage collection if library has traps disabled.
- Thread safety
Known problems with this release. FreeBSD 4.11: POSIX threads is not in libpthread, but in libc_r. This means, if you configure with --enable-threads, you will need to set LDFLAGS='-pthread' because the example programs with otherwise fail to link, complaining about missing pthread_mutex_init and other, related functions.
