Valgrind Suite of Tools for Debugging and Profiling

Valgrind checks all memory operations in an application, like read,
write, malloc, new, free, and delete. Valgrind can find uses of
uninitialized memory, access to already freed memory, overflows,
illegal heap operations, memory leaks, and any illegal
new/malloc/free/delete commands. Another program in the package is
"cachegrind," a profiler based on the valgrind engine. It is plugin
based and many different tools are available.

To use valgrind you should launch the application like normal with
debuginfo packages installed, for example:

valgrind --tool=memcheck --leak-check=yes my_application

More valgrind options can be listed via "valgrind --help". There is
also complete documentation in the /usr/share/doc/packages/valgrind/
directory. A debugged application runs slower and needs much more
memory, but is usually still usable.
