Hi all,

I am writing some perl scripts to instrument C++ control flow
constructs (e.g. functions, if-then-elses etc.) to dump out code
coverage information.

This involves recognising the constructs and then instrumenting
them. As you may know that these constructs have many syntax
variations such as:

void helloworld() {

void helloworld()

void helloworld(){}

All mean the samething.

Now, I have the following questions:
1. Where can I find the test suite/c++ source files that stresses out gcc's
parser for all possible syntax variations when piped through gcc.
2. Is it all possible that I could use gcc's parser and integrate that into
my scripts. Has anybody ever tried that?
3. Does anybody know of an existing perl c++ parser?
4. Can anyone suggest a code coverage tool that is compiler and architecture

Thanks in advance for your help
