- 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 (normally __LINE__).
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_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.memory memory, debug
