        I don't need it often, but I can scarcely imagine life without it.

        Actually, we had to port to a DSP, a few years ago, and debugging memory corruption without such a tool was a real nightmare. Our only saving grace was that the code was single-threaded. So, it became a matter of inserting integrity checks using a roughly binary search pattern. Turned out to be caused by a compiler bug!
