Tcl_DumpActiveMemory, Tcl_InitMemory, Tcl_ValidateAllMemory — Validated memory allocation interface
- Tcl_DumpActiveMemory, Tcl_InitMemory, Tcl_ValidateAllMemory — Validated memory allocation interface
- #include <tcl.h>
- Tcl_ValidateAllMemory(fileName, line)
- SEE ALSO
These functions provide access to Tcl memory debugging information.
They are only functional when Tcl has been compiled with
TCL_MEM_DEBUG defined at compile-time. When TCL_MEM_DEBUG
is not defined, these functions are all no-ops.
- Tcl_Interp *interp (in)
Tcl interpreter in which to add commands.
- const char *fileName (in)
For Tcl_DumpActiveMemory, name of the file to which memory
information will be written. For Tcl_ValidateAllMemory, name of
the file from which the call is being made (normally __FILE__).
- int line (in)
Line number at which the call to Tcl_ValidateAllMemory is made
Tcl_DumpActiveMemory will output a list of all currently
allocated memory to the specified file. The information output for
each allocated block of memory is: starting and ending addresses
(excluding guard zone), size, source file where ckalloc was
called to allocate the block and line number in that file. It is
especially useful to call Tcl_DumpActiveMemory after the Tcl
interpreter has been deleted.
Tcl_InitMemory adds the Tcl memory command to the
interpreter given by interp. Tcl_InitMemory is called
Tcl_ValidateAllMemory forces a validation of the guard zones of
all currently allocated blocks of memory. Normally validation of a
block occurs when its freed, unless full validation is enabled, in
which case validation of all blocks occurs when ckalloc and
ckfree are called. This function forces the validation to occur
at any point.
