Mudflap Violations view

The Mudflap Violations view is populated based on the contents of Mudflap log file that you specified during the Launch Configuration setup. If the Mudflap log file is updated, the Mudflap Violation view automatically refreshes to reflect the modified data.

Since Mudflap provides pointer debugging functionality, including buffer overflow detection, leak detection, and reads to uninitialized objects, the Mudflap Violations view will contain a comprehensive list of these errors (data from the output log). You can double-click an error to locate its corresponding source code.


The Mudflap Violations view has the following icons:
