I'm trying to find a MFC or C++ function to tell me wether heap memory at a given address has been allocated or is in use.  Assuming there is such a function, what is it?  Thanks...

What are you trying to do?  There is AfxIsMemoryBlock and AfxIsValidPointer.  Also there is also _CrtCheckMemory, and a few other _Crt functions.  I don't think this directly solves your problem, but maybe a step in the right direction.

Thanks...  AfxIsMemoryBlock() is what I was looking for.  I'm writing a test tool for work using a linked list and my algorithm needs that function to determine if I need to allocate memory or not when the user is incrementing through the list.
