I just had to post how much I love valgrind.
I have a long live C program that once ran for 400 days straight serving out requests for my website. It ran for so long that “ps’ just showed the year that it was started 🙂 Anyway enhancements over the years have introduced some memory leaks, and within a number of hours, I had fixed all the leaks. Some of the changes were in code I hadn’t touched for years. It just makes things so easy. So .. thanks Julian!
