The GRASP Project has created an algorithmic-level graphical representation for software called the Control Structure Diagram (CSD). The CSD was created to improve the comprehension efficiency of Ada source code and, as a result, improve software reliability and reduce software costs. Since its creation, the CSD has been expanded and adapted to include other languages. GRASP provides the capability to generate CSD's from Ada 95, C, C++, Java, and VHDL source code in both a reverse and forward engineering mode with a level of flexibility suitable for professional application. GRASP has been integrated with the GNU family of compilers for Ada (GNAT) and C (gcc), and Sun's javac compiler for Java. Use of GRASP is not restricted to these compilers, however. This has resulted in a comprehensive graphically-based development environment for these languages. The user may view, edit, print, and compile source code as CSDs with no discernible addition to storage or computational overhead.
The Router Audit Tool (rat) downloads configurations of router devices running IOS to be audited, and then checks them against the settings defined in the benchmark. For each configuration examined, it produces a report listing the following: a list of each rule checked with a pass/fail score, a raw overall score, a weighted overall score (1-10), and a list of IOS commands that will correct problems identified.
jGRASP integrates the Control Structure Diagram (CSD) seamlessly and unobtrusively into source-code editing for Java, C, C++, Objective-C, Ada, and VHDL. The CSD is a control flow and data structure diagram that fits into the space normally taken by indentation in source code. Its intention is to improve the readability of source code. The CSD also enables source code folding in a meaningful way, based on code structures. jGRASP provides lots of editing features, an integrated Java debugger, UML dependency diagrams for Java, configurable colors and font size, and click-to-error for compile and runtime (Java stack dumps) errors.
Structure101 is a tool to understand, measure, and control software structure. It allows you to see exactly how your high-level components depend on each other and why. You can use it to find out immediately when your architecture is accidentally changed by code-level changes at the coal-face. It can help you control structural complexity, since it can measure the complexity of methods, classes, and packages and warn you when given limits are exceeded. It can also discover the locations of productivity-killing package dependency cycles.
Asimulator is a simulator for intelligent agents, useful to practice search algorithms, in AI courses, or for fun. The agent's goal is to understand precepts and respond with actions in a virtual world (consisting of a grid up to 129x129) to maximize a score. The simulator opens a socket, so any language can be used for agents. (Samples in Ada are included.) Agent debug output can be shown. Both text in a log window and symbols on the map can be used to visualize thoughts.
