electric-fence

A malloc(3) debugger

Variants:
Electric Fence is a debugger that uses virtual memory hardware to detect illegal memory accesses. It can detect two common programming bugs: software that overruns or underruns the boundaries of a malloc() memory allocation, and software that touches a memory allocation that has been released by free().

Unlike other malloc() debuggers, Electric Fence will detect read accesses as well as writes, and it will stop and pinpoint the exact instruction that causes an error. It is not as thorough as Purify, however.

In order to debug a program it needs to be linked with Electric Fence's library or dynamic linking needs to be used; README.Debian explains that in detail.

Electric Fence is a different kind of malloc() debugger. It uses the virtual
memory hardware of your system to detect when software overruns the boundaries
of a malloc() buffer. It will also detect any accesses of memory that has
been released by free(). Because it uses the VM hardware for detection,
Electric Fence stops your program on the first instruction that causes

The official maintainer of this package is Siggy Brentrup <bsb@debian.org>.
But he apparently lost his net.access, so this version was ma

This is a suggested ~/.gdbinit from Ray Dassen - it enables you to use 
Electric Fence from within gdb without having to relink the binary. See
the gdb docs for more information.
