Other tools for Qt Development
Ok. I’m slowly getting used to coding with Qt. I’m currently working on coding a graph and I’ve gotten to a point where I want to start unit testing the code.
Is there a tool out there that I can use to track issues in coding such as memory leaks?
Check this thread: Diskussion about memory profiler… [developer.qt.nokia.com]
There are several tools and it depends on the platform…
There is also a nice visualizer for the massif (one of the valgrind tools) output called massif-visualizer [gitorious.org].
By the by – I have had good success using Boost::Graph and Qt together. This might be overkill for what you need, but it’s the best I’ve found.
I’ve not done any OSX development at all, but I’ve also had good success with simple tools like dmalloc, DUMA, and mpatrol.
I wrote an (IMNSHO) incredibly awesome one about ten years ago, but it breaks badly on C++ templates so it never got released. Someday I will have time to figure out how to rewrite it to make it work again…
