c++ memory leak detection

P: n/a
Hello,
Is there any good memory leak detection software for C++ available as a
freeware...
I had used purify but had to discontinue due to huge license fees...
Also tried Sun workshop memory monitor........its a kind of buggy as it
doesnt detect most of the
memory leaks.

Cud anyone suggest some good memory leak detection software preferable
freeware.

Thanks

comp.lang.c++ is about the standard C++ language. Third-party
applications (such as those for finding memory leaks) aren't part of
the language, and thus aren't discussed.

IIRC, there's no charter. Just the welcome message and FAQ.
