NAME
       memstomp - detect function calls with overlapping memory regions

SYNOPSIS
       memstomp [-dk] application [argument...]

       memstomp -h

DESCRIPTION
       The memstomp utility identifies function calls that use overlapping memory regions in sit-
       uations when such an overlap is not allowed  by	various  standards.  When  a  problem  is
       detected,  memstomp  displays  a  backtrace to help you debug the problem, and if executed
       with the --debug-info command line option, it even uses the available  debugging  informa-
       tion.  Since  the  backtrace  code is not thread safe, memstomp also allows you to use the
       --kill option to immediately terminate the analyzed program when an invalid function  call
       is detected.

       This  version of memstomp inspects the following function calls: memcpy(), memccpy(), mem-
       pcpy(), strcpy(), stpcpy(), strncpy(), stpncpy(), strcat(),  strncat(),	wmemcpy(),  wmem-
       pcpy(), wcscpy(), wcsncpy(), wcscat(), and wcsncat().

OPTIONS
       -d, --debug-info
	      Make use of debugging information to produce more detailed stack traces.

       -k, --kill
	      Kill the analyzed application when a problem is detected.

       -h, --help
	      Display usage information and exit.

       -q, --quiet
	      Be less verbose
