valagrind plug in for code::blocks.
« on: July 26, 2011, 12:56:44 pm »
I am running code::blocks on xubuntu 11.04. From web i come to know that valagrind is a good memory leak detector for Linux and also free ware,open source. I want to install it. How to install that on my code::blocks 10.05? I installed codeblocks from software centre. there is no plug in naming valagrind in codeblocks. Also I did not found valagrind in software centre.
If you know any other good memory leak detector tool and which is easy to use , then please tell me.

I guess you mean valgrind. It's a contrib plugin, so it's not in the core.
I'm not an ubuntu user, but on debian it's on the codeblocks-contrib package.

If it is not present, you can try the download on this page: http://www.codeblocks.org/downloads/26
If you don't like it for any reason, there is the Jen's repository, look on his website: http://apt.jenslody.de/ , where you'll find the nightly builds too if you one day you want to try them.

Just tell me how to install it. I have downloaded it from here (version 3.6.1) I see this video on Youtube which explains how to use valgrind.

First of all, this forum is not related to Ubuntu, and I think it will be locked in a few time. Read the Rules!
Second, you should use the valgrind of Ubuntu's repositories.
Third, as I said, I don't know Ubuntu, just debian, and so I just do an apt-get when I want to install.
Fourthly, if you intend to use command line tools, and you are not able to learn with documentation well... good luck.
