Hi Erik,

thanks a lot. Now if I write my own programs (partly for/with links/refs
to gromacs libs, etc.), what do I have to do to enable them too for
dmalloc debugging ? Do I have to link to a special object file ?

Usually I use the Gromacs memory routines (snew, sfree, ...) .. so is
this sufficient for having the debugging work ? (But my recent error
was actually by closing a file twice .. so I don't know whether that
would be debugged, too)

Sorry for these newby questions, but I am not very experienced with C
