IMM is a memory testing tool that not only allows developers to find eventual memory leaks, but also helps to locate other difficult to find errors in memory management, such as memory overruns and memory block corruptions. The tool is designed as a wrapper around the standard libc memory allocation routines malloc, calloc, realloc and free, which makes it easy to use in packages written in ANSI C and C++.

The package provides routines for inspecting the memory allocation and displaying their contents via user-supplied callback functions. The debugging hooks can be turned on and off without the need of recompilation, thereby providing a compromise between extensive debugging information and performance.

You are welcome to use IMM in your own programs, please see the examples subdirectory or these other applications.
