// This file contains functions that affect leak checking behavior within
// targets built with the LeakSanitizer (LSan), a memory leak detector that is
// integrated within the AddressSanitizer (ASan) as an additional component, or
// which can be used standalone. LSan and ASan are included (or can be provided)
// as additional components for most compilers such as Clang, gcc and MSVC.
// Note: this leak checking API is not yet supported in MSVC.
// Leak checking is enabled by default in all ASan builds.

namespace absl {
// HaveLeakSanitizer()
// Returns true if a leak-checking sanitizer (either ASan or standalone LSan) is
// currently built into this target.
bool HaveLeakSanitizer();
// DoIgnoreLeak()
// Implements `IgnoreLeak()` below. This function should usually
// not be called directly; calling `IgnoreLeak()` is preferred.
void DoIgnoreLeak(const void* ptr);
// IgnoreLeak()
// Instruct the leak sanitizer to ignore leak warnings on the object referenced
// by the passed pointer, as well as all heap objects transitively referenced
// by it. The passed object pointer can point to either the beginning of the
// object or anywhere within it.
// Example:
// static T* obj = IgnoreLeak(new T(...));
// If the passed `ptr` does not point to an actively allocated object at the
// time `IgnoreLeak()` is called, the call is a no-op; if it is actively
// allocated, the object must not get deallocated later.

return ptr;
// LeakCheckDisabler
// This helper class indicates that any heap allocations done in the code block
// covered by the scoped object, which should be allocated on the stack, will
// not be reported as leaks. Leak check disabling will occur within the code
// block and any nested function calls within the code block.
// Example:
// void Foo() {
// LeakCheckDisabler disabler;
// ... code that allocates objects whose leaks should be ignored ...
// }
// REQUIRES: Destructor runs in same thread as constructor

// RegisterLivePointers()
// Registers `ptr[0,size-1]` as pointers to memory that is still actively being
// referenced and for which leak checking should be ignored. This function is
// useful if you store pointers in mapped memory, for memory ranges that we know
// are correct but for which normal analysis would flag as leaked code.
void RegisterLivePointers(const void* ptr, size_t size);
// UnRegisterLivePointers()
// Deregisters the pointers previously marked as active in
// `RegisterLivePointers()`, enabling leak checking of those pointers.
