xmemory is a small and efficient module offering memory extension capabilities to ANSI C programs running on POSIX-compliant systems. If offers several useful features such as memory leak detection, protection for free on NULL or unallocated pointers, and virtually unlimited memory space. xmemory requires the mmap() system call to be implemented in the local C library to function. This module has been ported and tested on a number of Unix flavours (Linux, HPUX, Solaris, BSD derivatives, Dec OSF/1).
