APIdeduce will analyse the complete C source code of your application. For each C source unit processed, APIdeduce will highlight use of API constructs (based on a database describing known API's)that do not followed the published specification. Other than indicating where the problem was found no useful information about what caused the construct to be flagged. A .api file is generated for each C source file. This file contains information on API usage by that source file.

The .api files, created by analysing all of the applications source code, can be processed to create a summary of API usage. This summary contains the following:

  • The API's referenced by the application
  • The identifiers defined by the application that clash with names reserved by the referenced API's
  • Identifiers referenced by the application for which APIdeduce has no information
  • A list of violations of API interface specifications
