There exists an excellent coverage tool called ATAC (Automatic Test
Analysis for C programs) from Bellcore. While earlier versions
(3.3.13) were available for free, later versions (4.x and above) which
also support C++ (have neat GUIs and many other nifty tools for
slicing etc) are not. Having used both versions extensively, I
strongly urge you to get a newer version !
When I last picked up at atac I got it at
ftp://flash.bellcore.com/pub/atac - I don't know if that version is
still available (although I have a local copy I still use for my
experiments) - contact email@example.com for more details.
ATAC measures the following coverages - function, block, decision,
c-uses, p-uses and all-uses. It also runs under several systems (I've
used it on Solaris,SunOS and AIX).
Hope this helps ..
