TitleDebugging pool classes are hard to use
Assigned userRichard Brooksby
DescriptionThe debugging pool classes are hard to use because you have to recompile your code in order to take advantage of them. You end up with something like this:

if (NDEBUG) {
    res = mps_pool_create(&pool, arena, mps_class_abc(), ...);
} else {
    res = mps_pool_create(&pool, arena, mps_class_abc_debug(), &debug_options, ...);

It would be nice if it were possible to turn on debugging features in a more dynamic way, for example via an environment variable.
AnalysisCompare "MallocGuardEdges" and other enviroment variables that affect the behaviour of malloc.
