<programming, tool> (Dutch for "earth") A tool to check memory
use for C++ programs, written by Steve Reiss
<firstname.lastname@example.org> (who names his programs after living
Aard tracks the state of each byte of memory in the heap and
the stack. The state can be one of Undefined,
Uninitialised, Free or Set. The program can detect invalid
transitions (i.e. attempting to set or use undefined or free
storage or attempting to access uninitialised storage).
In addition, the program keeps track of heap use through
malloc and free and at the end of the run reports memory
blocks that were not freed and that are not accessible
(i.e. memory leaks).
The tools works using a spliced-in shared library on
SPARCs running C++ 3.0.1 under SunOS 4.X.
