Tests a computer's memory subsystem

'memtester' is a user-space utility for testing the memory subsystem in a computer to determine if it is faulty. It does a good job of finding intermittent faults and non-deterministic faults. It has many tests to help catch borderline memory. 'memtester' should compile and run on any 32- or 64-bit *nix system.
