very much thanks for that helpful instruction:
HOWTO compile and use the mpatrol memory leak detection library
I tried to keep very strictly to it and was "almost" succesful up to the end.
But I get errors, if I try to link, using the command:
g++ -g -lmpatrol -lbfd -liberty -lintl -limagehlp -o main.exe main.o
I get the error mesage:
c:/mingw/include/mpatrol.h:1061: undefined reference to `__mp_alloc'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status.
The libraries are all existent and are found, (compiling also without errors).
The only "abnormal" behaviour during the make process was an unknown
switch "-mno_cygwin", where the make process stopped.
Because we use mingw here anyway (and I havn't installed Cygwin at all),
I deleted all occurences of "-mno-cygwin". After that, I run through "make"
and "make install" without errors.
Finally, I copied all files below "local" into the mingw-directories.
So far I ended up.
I searched for "mpatrol __app_alloc" also in this discussion group,
but all, what I got, was http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/mpatrol/message/803
with no further help for me.
So I would be pleased, if anybody has any idea, what can I do further.
Is it possible, that my error has somehing to do with the unknown "-mno-cygwin" switch?
Do I miss a library due to the "undefined reference to `__mp_alloc'", but which library
could that be (I linked to all, what I found in the mpatrol.pdf document.)
Any other idea?
Thanks for giving your time
