When I code on Apple or Linux (both of which use the GNU Compiler Collection and its associated tools), I [occasionally] use gprof and gcov to do profiling and code coverage testing. The nice part about them is, well, they’re free – you don’t have to fork over hundreds of dollars to some irrational company. 🙂
So, my question is this: does anyone out there know of a free Windows-based, C/C++-based code coverage tool? I know something is on tap for VS2005, but it looks to be CLR-based to me. I know zippo about CLR, and I’d like to keep it that way.
The reason I bring it up is that I recently learned from some of the Windows OS devs that they are held accountable for code coverage testing during the development process. I don’t think many Windows driver developers do much code coverage testing during development yet.
