CoverageMeter is a complete code coverage tool chain. It analyzes the performance of a software validation and permits the optimization of the testing process of C/C++ applications. It finds untested code sections, redundant tests, and unused source code. It works by instrumenting the source code at compilation time and by analyzing the execution report that the instrumentation produces.
Cobra is a general purpose programming language with a clean, high-level syntax. It provides language level features for quality, including first class unit tests and Eiffel-style contracts. It supports both static and dynamic binding. Cobra is a compiled language with good run-time performance, but also provides some scripting conveniences such as a pound-bang line (#!) and one step compile-and-run. Cobra runs on Linux, Mac, Windows, and anywhere else that Novell Mono or MS .NET exist, including handhelds.
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.
Chump is a table-driven assembler and dissembler with a very fast new architecture input format. Both the assembler and disassembler are created using a single description. It comes with descriptions for ARM, MIPS, Stump, and 6809. It is intended for use as a library compiled with other programs to allow line assembly and disassembly.
The MetaC programming language is a 100% backward compatible extension to the C language that adds reflections and the ability to analyze and modify C source code at compile time. It has been specially designed to search for arbitrary code structures and instantiate new source code. Typical applications for MetaC based meta-programs are development tasks concerning embedded and real-time software. Examples are API abstraction and retargeting to a new API (ever been locked to a vendor-specific API?), application specific debugging and profiling on an embedded target, and WCET measurements.
Groovy is an agile, dynamic language for the JVM which combines many features from languages like Python, Ruby, and Smalltalk and makes them available to Java developers using a Java-like syntax. It is designed to help get things done on the Java platform in a quicker, more concise, and fun way. It can be used as an alternative compiler to javac to generate standard Java bytecode to be used by any Java project or it can be used dynamically as an alternative language, such as for scripting Java objects, templating, or writing unit test cases.
