Detecting Memory Leaks in C/C++ Applications [Video]
C++ is a comprehensive and complex language, however, it also gives programmers complete freedom when it comes to the management of dynamic memory. This allows them to allocate memory and manipulate it at runtime, one of the reasons why C++ is still a favorite language for high-performance applications in various domains such as gaming, telecom, finance, and aerospace. However, using C++ also requires programmers to take great care while using dynamic memory, such as releasing acquired memory and avoiding the risk of overstepping the memory boundary, as not being cautious could lead to problems such as dangling pointers, memory corruption, and memory leaks.
This course is designed to help you overcome such problems by using essential Visual Studio features effectively. You’ll go on to explore the rich set of functions provided by the C/C++ runtime heap library. These functions can help you detect memory leaks and even overflows efficiently. Progressing through the sections, you'll understand how to use these functions and make your programs bug-free. In addition to this, you'll also learn how to effectively use them to avoid memory problems.
By the end of this course, you'll have the skills you need to use CRT heap functions confidently to detect and isolate memory problems.
