TCAT C/C++, Ver. 3.2
true 32-bit native executables,
advanced compiler-based source-language scanning technology,
improved runtime support,
and full GUI access to
a project's call trees,
function and method digraphs,
and current and past-test coverage data
the branch (C1) and call-pair (S1) level.
FEATURES of TCAT C/C++:
This release includes a completely rebuilt user interface
that simplifies user activities.
This version uses a workspace model, somewhat similar to MS Visual Studio,
to maintain your projects.
Each project contains a set of files that you wish
to instrument or compile into the test build.
Customizing instrumentor and compiler settings has been made simpler.
And, instrumentor and compiler settings can now be retained for each project.
Mouse Access to Functionality.
Most of the product functionality are accessible with left and right mouse
clicks to any of the objects in the project workspace.
File Management Simplified.
It is now easier to manage source files.
For example, you can now easily
add new files to instrument in the current project,
remove files, or
selectively instrument/compile source files.
APG Feature. (Please see Release notes for details).
Fully integrated with Microsoft Visual C++ 6.
Full processing for ANSI C, K&R C, "standard C++" and Microsoft Visual C++ through Version 6.
Complete support for Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFCs), including the most-recently released revisions in Microsoft Visual C++ 6.
Standardized and easy-to-use automated product installation and de-installation process.
Simplified user-based licensing that also supports group, department-wide and/or site licenses.
Easy to use point-and-click coverage reporting
with full reflection of coverage
data to original source texts, plus point-and-click display
of call-tree, class-hierarchy, and individual function digraph
with immediate back-reference to source code.
Separable C1 (very high detail, at the segment level) and S1 (lower detail, at the call-pair level) coverage measurement.
Complete C and C++ language support combined.
Complete support for C++ templates, in-line functions, exception handlers.
Support for DLLs, multi-threaded code, device drivers and other time critical applications.
Easy interfaces to handle large, multiple complex projects, without capacity limitations.
Improved and fully-indexed user documentation
available both in hard copy and on-line versions.
Improved GUI that has full integration with
popular C++ compilers, including Microsoft Visual C++ 6.
A fully worked example using Scribble,
a sample application program delivered with Microsoft Visual C++,
employing a wide range of Microsoft Foundation Class features.
A common user interface and unified work-flow in all Windows platforms.
Improvements in instrumentation efficiency, runtime data-collection
efficiency, and source-viewing capability.
Navigation is possible now between the CallTree, the Digraph, the Coverage displays and
the source code.
BENEFITS of TCAT C/C++:
Highly reliable, low overhead calculation of test suite completeness,
suitable for use by developers as well as testers.
Rapid identification of untested logical segments and/or call-pairs
help you pinpoint untested functions, segments, classes, modules and units.
Early detection of latent defects due to untested or poorly tested software.
Enhanced program understanding from detailed system level (call tree)
and module level structure (digraph) displays.
APPLICATIONS of TCAT C/C++:
"Industrial strength" applications which are very large
and highly complex and which stress C++ to its limits.
Test suite completeness checking
(to determine how to expand/extend incomplete suites).
Unit/module level and system level (integration) testing support.
Modification analysis and re-testing in maintenance/upgrade modes.
