Pin is an ATOM-like instrumentation tool for Linux executables. It allows arbitrary code (written in C or C++) to be injected at arbitrary places in an executable. Unlike Atom, Pin does not perform the instrumentation statically by rewriting the executable, but rather dynamically by adding instrumentation while the executable is running. Currently supported platforms include IA-32, Intel Xscale, and Itanium processors.
