valgrind controls the execution of a program and performs a wide variety of tests as it runs. The usage appears simple:

      $ valgrind [valgrind-options] program-name [program-options]

The devil, as they say, is in the details of picking the options needed for the particular types of testing desired. Please review the documentation provided in the Resources section.
