Next Monday, July 19th at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear Shachar Raindel
talk about:

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

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:
