I am glad that you pointed that out to me--thank you. Does clang have
comparable functionality?

I gave up on using dvtm a while ago (now I use tmux which is good) because it
would keep crashing. And I could not figure out how to debug the crashes or get
specific information about the cause of the crashes. If I had known about these
options then I would have compiled dvtm with them and maybe gave better bug
reports. (Though I know C, I am not an expert in C.)

Can someone point me to an article or blog post recommending which of these
sanitize options would be recommended for general daily use?

Are there any operating systems or (Linux) distributions that use these run-time
checks by default, i.e. their binary packages are compiled with them?

If enabling these run-time checks adds 5%, 10%, or even 25% to the run time or
memory usage of a presumably already fast and small C binary executable, then it
is worth it to me.
