GlenMac Causation? (142 comments)

Is being a competitive scrabble player causing the brain to warp? Or is having this 'warped' brain a general advantage to becoming a competitive scrabble player?

Memory Checker Tools For C++?

GlenMac Fortify (398 comments)

I don't know if you've used or seen fortify but I found it a wonderful tool to not warn and resolve memory issues in C++.

It is very fast, compiles switches into nothing and incredibly helpful.

-- Snip
Fortify is a powerful C++ debugging aid. Detects and pinpoints memory related bugs. It supports alloc/calloc/realloc/strdup/free and new/delete. It traps memory leaks, writes beyond and before memory blocks, writes to freed memory, free twice, freeing memory never allocated, and removes all randomness from reading uninitialized or free memory.
