- Subject: Unix vs. Windows Posix threads !
I have an application that is cross-platform. The application uses
threads. It runs nicely in Linux, unix and MAC and shows no memory
leaks under Valgrind. I tried running the application on Windows. I
used the Posix threads for Windows. The application runs fine but is
constantly leaking memory (can see it in the task manager). Memory
detectors such as Boundschecker and HeapAgent are not reporting any
leaks. The application runs about a day, uses up all memory and
crashes. I am linking pthreadVC.dll into my application and using
MSVC++ on Windows XP. Any help would be appreciated.
