    Summary: Valgrind, an open-source memory debugger for GNU/Linux
    Description: 
    Valgrind is a GPL'd tool to help you find memory-management problems in
    your programs.  When a program is run under Valgrind's supervision, all
    reads and writes of memory are checked, and calls to
    malloc/new/free/delete are intercepted.  As a result, Valgrind can
    detect problems such as:
    
        * Use of uninitialised memory
        * Reading/writing memory after it has been free'd
        * Reading/writing off the end of malloc'd blocks
        * Reading/writing inappropriate areas on the stack
        * Memory leaks -- where pointers to malloc'd blocks are lost forever
        * Passing of uninitialised and/or unaddressible memory to system calls
        * Mismatched use of malloc/new/new [] vs free/delete/delete []
        * Overlaps of arguments to strcpy() and related functions
        * Some abuses of the POSIX pthread API
