Detecting dangling pointers
 
Hi, all:-)
Does anyone know how to use valgrind to detect the use of dangling pointers? And can valgrind detect all kinds of dangling pointers? For example, assume that there are two pointers pointing to the same address, one has been free'd, while the other one is still used to write to that memory location. Can valgrind detect this kind of error?

Yes. Valgrind is amazing. Just run it and see what it spits out.
