Description : A powerful library for debugging memory allocations
The mpatrol library is a powerful debugging tool that attempts to
diagnose run-time errors that are caused by the wrong use of
dynamically allocated memory.
Along with providing a comprehensive and configurable log of all
dynamic memory operations that occurred during the lifetime of a
program, the mpatrol library performs extensive checking to detect
any misuse of dynamically allocated memory.
All logging and tracing output from the mpatrol library is sent
to a separate log file in order to keep its diagnostics separate
from any that the program being tested might generate.
A wide variety of library settings can also be changed at
run-time via an environment variable, thus removing the need to
recompile or relink in order to change the library's behaviour.
All of this functionality can be integrated into existing code
through the inclusion of a single header file at compile-time.
