Is there something like Valgrind for windows when using CB?
« on: April 06, 2019, 05:33:01 am »
Hi, there is a tool named Valgrind in the toolbar of CodeBlocks for the linux version, not for the windows version. The Valgrind is very useful.
Is there something like Valgrind for the windows to use for coding C/C++?

I have found DrMemory to be very useful.  You install it, drag your .exe onto its icon, and after closing your app, it reports any issues in Notepad.

Even though it doesn't support C++'s new and delete allocation/de-allocation mechanisms, I've been using MemWatch for several years.
