See complete series on pointers and dynamic memory in C/C++ here:
In this lesson, we have explained the concept of memory leak in C/C++. This is a good interview question also. Memory leak happens due to improper use of dynamic memory in a program when we get some memory using malloc and do not free it, when its not being used.
