17:29

In this Lecture we will look into Introduction of Make tool and usage of it 

Make tool contd...
17:45
17:34

In this tutorial we will have a look into Autoconf tool 

Autoconf is an extensible package of M4 macros that produce shell scripts to automatically configure software source code packages. These scripts can adapt the packages to many kinds of UNIX-like systems without manual user intervention. Autoconf creates a configuration script for a package from a template file that lists the operating system features that the package can use

09:32

In this class we will look into how to compile the Linux kernel 

17:26

In this class we will look about the tool Efence 

efence is a software that overruns the boundaries of a malloc()memory allocation,
software that touches a memory allocation that has been released by free(). Unlike other malloc() debuggers, Electric Fence will detect read accesses as well as writes, and it will pinpoint the exact instruction that causes an error.



09:09

In this class we will look into valgrind tools 

Valgrind is an instrumentation framework for building dynamic analysis tools. There are Valgrind tools that can automatically detect many memory management and threading bugs, and profile your programs in detail.
