This is one painful memory leak hunting story. Probably more painful than I'd ever gone through in C++ projects.

In C++, memory/resource leaks happens. But that happens a lot less than many would think if you code in modern C++ style.

In my personal experience, when it does happen, assuming it's easy to reproduce, finding what's leaking usually takes less than a couple of hours.

What does a drive-thru have to teach us about optimizing tools and processes? "Where's My Straw?", my strangely introspective journey to subversive conclusions about optimization, standards & JS, from the most recent FluentConf 2014.

I've been posting drafts of the titles for the upcoming "You Don't Know JS" book series. Posted complete draft of "Scope & Closures", and partial draft-in-progress of "this & Object Prototypes".
