TOMORROW, July 26th at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear Shachar Raindel
Valgrind - from magic to science
Valgrind is an extremely powerful development tool, which detects and
pin-points many common programming errors when running a program. Some
examples for the problems it handles are many kinds of buffer overflows,
using uninitialized data, accessing freed memory and memory leaks.
Valgrind does that without need for recompilation of the program, simply
by adding "valgrind" to the beginning of the command line.
To an outside observer, this could seem like magic. In this lecture, we
will take a peek under the hood of valgrind, and learn how the magic is
done. I will also briefly introduce other, less known features of valgrind.
We meet in Taub (CS Faculty) building, room 6. For instructions see:
