Like BernardIE5317 and some others mentioned.

I remember using debug versions of malloc/free that would allocate a few extra bytes of memory at the end of a malloc() and write marker bytes in them. free() would check to make sure they survived. I think there were a few other tricks dealing with using special bytes for unallocated memory.
