Discovering Memory Leaks

Title - Discovering Memory Leaks
Details - If you are working on a serious project, you will propably use a sophisticated memory manager which will discover memory leaks (along with their exact position in the code),
but if you just want to do a quick test in a small program, there is an easy way to let the debugger check for memory leaks:

- Include crtdbg.h in your project (this file is included in the
Microsoft Platform SDK
- At the beginning of main() or WinMain () put this code:

int flag = _CrtSetDbgFlag(_CRTDBG_REPORT_FLAG);
This works in Visual C++ and, if you run the programm in debug mode, it will report memory leaks in the debug output window 
("Immediate Window" in the latest Visual Studio version).
