Under any unix-type environment do the following in a console window...
Simply keep this console window open in one corner of your screen.

  $ tail -f <heaptrc_output_filename>

  $ tail -f /tmp/heaptrc.txt

This will now continuously show you the output of heaptrc.

Alternatively, always execute your applications from the command line
and simply let heaptrc output to stdout. On application exit you will
get a summary output and if memory leaks occured, the need information
for the leaks.
