It has a strange name, but who cares, this tool will apparently help you debug your c/c++ code! And after the all nighter I just pulled, I must say I wish I'd known about this before when I was diagnosing that stupid segfault (c++ shall be the death of me). Big plus: it will work on Mac OS X, but unfortunately it won't work on Windows. Will report back on how useful Valgrind actually is, since I apparently will be spending a lot of time with good old c++.

  1. Valgrind is awesome. Most of us undergrads swear by it for debugging C/C++ memory mistakes.

    For more than you ever wanted to know about your memory allocation, do
    valgrind --leak-check=full ./(binary)
