6 of XJTAG adds views of the call stack and of the currently-set breakpoints to the XJEase debugger in XJDeveloper, completing its debugging capabilities by enabling a view of the stack of functions which have been called to get to the current point in the code, and allowing the user to easily view and remove breakpoints from the code.
Stack overflow attacks are exploited by making a program attempt to use more memory space than is available in the call stack - a buffer that stores requests that need to be executed.
1) The call stack when the allocating API was invoked, denoted as set {alloc_[stack.
It includes the powerful IAR C/C++ Compiler as well as the C-SPY Debugger with a broad selection of smart features such as complex code and data breakpoints, runtime stack analysis, call stack visualization, code coverage analysis and integrated power consumption monitoring.
The new tool includes the improved source navigation; go to definition, combined profiler with the JavaScript call stack and timeline and profiler for CPU sampling.
Other new features include: enhanced autoscripting with Intellisense; open and heterogeneous database support; enhanced debugging features such as tracepoints and the ability to run to a specified function on the call stack, as well as popup windows to enable easy display of variables and property values of PowerBuilder and .
Other topics include memorized forward computation of dynamic slices, call stack coverage for GUI test suite reduction, the relationship between software assertions and faults, and model simulation for test execution capacity estimation.

This structured semantics has an explicit subroutine call stack for ensuring that subroutines are called on a last-in, first-out basis.
In evaltrace diagrams, the nesting of contours accurately reflects the structure of the call stack of an interpreter, with the innermost contour being the top of the stack and the global contour at the bottom.
CA APM s Smart Instrumentation gives us deep visibility into transaction traces, down through the call stack and into the code which is not only critical in helping our application development and delivery teams improve code quality, it also enables our application support teams to diagnose problems faster and reduce mean time to repair of outages, said Chris Proulx, principle systems engineer, Liberty Mutual.
