maybe this isn't *too* far afield now that the GNAT sources are available
at gnu.org :-)
It seems a pity to have to look for such tools, when other languages can
avoid the problem in the first place (of course Java can make the same
Note incidentally that bounds checkers (such as are built into languages
like Ada and Java, and which could be built into C++ though it is a trickier
prospect in C++) are more powerful than tools like Purify, since they operate
at the semantic level of the language rather than at the implementation level.
Now a question: I thought that gcc did have at least a project for providing
bounds checking in g++, isn't that the case?
