An easy to use memory profiling and malloc debugging library for C and C++ programs. It can finds leaks, multiple deallocations, and memory corruptions. The most important features of ccmalloc are that it just needs to be linked to your application. Only specify '-lccmalloc -ldl' during the link phase. There is no need for changing your source code or recompile it. It works for code compiled without debugging symbols (even -fomit-frame-pointer to some extend). Also calls to malloc from other libraries are detected (f.e. strdup).
