Re: memory lead
If you allocate memory dynamically from the heap, then don't return it before the program exits, it's no longer available for other programs.

Re: memory lead
Here is the example


int main()
char *buffer1;
char *buffer2;
buffer1 = (char *)malloc(5*sizeof(char));
buffer2 = (char *)malloc(5*sizeof(char));
buffer1 = buffer2; // This will lead Memory leak
