Only Insure++ uses state-of-the-art "Mutation Testing" technology to pinpoint the widest array of bugs, including memory and algorithmic error, then provide all the information necessary to repair the bugs immediately.
Insure++ is an automatic run- time application-testing tool that detects elusive defects such as memory corruption, memory leaks, memory allocation errors, variable initialization errors, variable definition conflicts, pointer errors, library errors, logic errors, and algorithmic errors.
CodeTEST, for example, measures over 128,000 real-time function executions at once; pinpoints and calculates the impact of things like algorithmic errors, call-pair distribution and Interrupt Service Routines; conducts point-to-point measurements of the highest possible fidelity; assesses how much CPU functions/tasks consume; and produces user-friendly reports so you can easily identify and analyze issues straight away in your software.
Insure++ identifies compile-time, run time and algorithmic errors, including memory corruption, operations on uninitialized, NULL, or "wild" pointers, memory leaks, errors which allocate and free dynamic memory, operations on unrelated pointers and more.
It uses patented Source Code Instrumentation technology (patent # 5,581,696) to find the widest variety of memory and algorithmic errors in C/C++ programs.
