Find memory errors and leaks

Have you ever had a customer say, The program was working fine for days, then it just crashed? If so, chances are good that your program had a memory error — somewhere.

Debugging memory errors can be frustrating; by the time a problem appears, often by crashing your program, the corruption may already be widespread, making the source of the problem difficult to trace.

Memory analysis is a key function to ensuring the quality of your systems. The QNX Memory Analysis perspective shows you how your program uses memory, and can help ensure that your program won't cause problems. The perspective helps you quickly pinpoint memory errors in your development and testing environments before your customers get your product.

The QNX Memory Analysis perspective may produce incorrect results when more than one IDE is communicating with the same target system. To use this perspective, make sure that only one IDE is connected to the target system.
