Try "plumber". It's freely available AFAIK, and if you can't find it
just drop me a note and I'll send it as an attachement.
Plumber is a tool that replaces the normal library versions of NEW and
UNCHECKED_DEALLOCATION under Ada and malloc and free under C or
C++. It currently supports:
OS Arch Compilers
SunOS 4.1 sparc SunAda 1.1, gnat 3.01, gcc, g++
Solaris sparc SunAda 2.1, gnat 3.01, gcc, g++
Linux i386 gnat 3.01, gcc, g++
The program runs normally, but when the program finishes execution it
generates a log file that lists all of the unfreed memory blocks.
Note that this READ_ME excerpt comes from plumber 1.6 which is
probably an old version. You should be able to find a more recent
version on the WWW.
