Lately I had to debug code that caused heap corruption, I found myself
struggling against the computer in order to understand what causes the
corruption and how.
In the search for memory validation APIs I have found _CrtCheckMemory() API
which is being used by debug version of C run-time libraries.
Using this API wrapped with an assert macro gives us the opportunity to
check the heap every few lines of code without any overhead in release
it would be smart idea to use it even without any visible corruption, it
saves time in the long run :-)
This tip is based on information written on the MSDN.
