Function Documentation

void nrt::allocation_debug_print ( bool  print)

Turn on/off memory-allocation debugging statements.

If on, each nrt::allocate() and nrt::deallocate() call will print some stats about the memory block being currently allocated/deallocated, as well as some general stats about the total amount of memory allocated and the amount of memory currently in use

void nrt::allocation_show_stats ( int  verbosity = 0,
const char *  pfx = 0,
const size_t  units = 0 

Print current stats for whatever memory allocator is in use.

verbosityIf greater than 0, will request additional stats to be displayed
pfxIf non-null, will be printed at the beginning of each stats line.
unitsIf non-zero, allocated memory blocks will be listed as multiples of this number of bytes; otherwise memory blocks will be listed as multiples of the units specified in the most recent call to allocation_set_stats_units().
