The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Question Debugging and run time error checking tools for C/C++ on Linux

I am working for an optical network company ( Sycamore Networks). We are using LINUX for the control card programming
of our network equipment. The programming language is
C/C++ with a GNU compiler. We are looking for debugging tools
and run time error/memory leak checking tools for LINUX operating system. Can UNIX tools, such as dbx and Purify, be
used on a LINUX machine? If yes, how to get them? If not,
any other tools are available?

pretty much anything that can be used on a UNIX can be used on linux, provided you have the source code. if dbx and purify are open source, then they most likely will work on linux.

just offhand tho, i know that there's a package on unix called 'lint' that checks for memory leaks. i think the linux variant is called 'lclint'.
