Memory leak detection tool

Does anyone know about a tool to do that ? something that is a bit cheaper than purify or numega? I have beem using purify which works gtreat, but I don't have the 1000$ to spend right now or even the 295$ for numega ... student..

Any ideas ? I found some free stuff but they never compile properly, I'm using win2000

Thank you :)

The Visual Studio debugger run with a DEBUG BUILD of the application does an decent job.  If you have Visual Studio (and I assume you do) then there is no additional charge.

If you use Visual Studio you can use the debugger and the CRT debug heap functions. To use these, you must include the following statements in your program, in this order:

#define _CRTDBG_MAP_ALLOC
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <crtdbg.h>

You can then dump memory leak information by including the following statement in your program:

_CrtDumpMemoryLeaks();

When you run your program under the debugger, _CrtDumpMemoryLeaks displays memory leak information in the Debug tab of the Output window.
