mtrace — interpret the malloc trace log


mtrace [option]... [binary] mtracedata


mtrace is a Perl script used to interpret and provide human readable output of the trace log contained in the file mtracedata, whose contents were produced by mtrace(3). If binary is provided, the output of mtrace also contains the source file name with line number information for problem locations (assuming that binary was compiled with debugging information).

For more information about the mtrace(3) function and mtrace script usage, see mtrace(3).
