  Description     : Several functions that trace memory leaks

 Test::LeakTrace provides several functions that trace memory leaks. 
 This module scans arenas, the memory allocation system, so it can detect any
 leaked SVs in given blocks
 Leaked SVs are SVs which are not released after the end of the scope they have
 been created. These SVs include global variables and internal caches. For
 example, if you call a method in a tracing block, perl might prepare a cache
 for the method. Thus, to trace true leaks, no_leaks_ok() and leaks_cmp_ok()
 executes a block more than once.
