Once upon a time Purify did work for vxworks. It would be a very nice
tool to have and it seems very odd that there's no product with
equivalent functionality.

If one wanted to build a Purify like tool, does anyone know how it
would be done? I don't really understand what it does and haven't
found much related info.

[Doesn't it stick extra code into your program to audit all of the
allocation, freeing, and pointer references? Dunno if it hacks the
source or rewrites the object. -John]
