I have Purify "2000" for NT, but have never gotten it to work properly
with gcc generated executables. I spent the better part of a day
researching this to see if anyone had figured it out and came up with
nothing that worked. No matter what I did (seemingly), purify/purecoverage
could not see the relocation section of the executable. If anyone figured
out what parameters needs to be given to gcc to work with Purify (or
Insure++ for that matter), please let me know.

it's better to burn out
than to fade away
