    Hi all,

    Could someone please compare and contrast the merits of using the commercial
    software insure++ to check for memory leaks in a C++ code with using the
    free software valgrind? I specifically have the linux platform in mind. Is
    the commercial software worth the price? Is it really better than valgrind?

    Thanks.

    valgrind has been all I ever needed.

    I can't comment on insure, but valgrind is at least as easy to
    use/reliable/informative as a two year old version of purify.
