I have the same problem--maybe worse.  I have limited knowledge and time,
but high drive to see something work.  I end up either butchering
something to see it happen quickly, or giving up (ADD at its greatest ;-). 

Is there any program that could at least give me part of this?  Like what
is being called where and from where?  It seems like a logical concept,
but I have pretty big holes in my coding knowledge so I am not sure what
is possible.

One of my semi-working test cases for Lynx on DOS used LYLeaks.  I
didn't get a lot of play time with it, but it really looked like it
could pinpoint memory leaks pretty well.  Am I off the mark on this one?
