SAL Home PROGRAM Tools & Utilities


Insure++ is a powerful automatic runtime error detection tool for C/C++ that automatically detects errors in your code, regardless of whether you know they exist. With ParaSoft's patented Source Code Instrumentation (patent no. 5,581,696) and Runtime Pointer Tracking technologies, Insure++ pinpoints bugs quickly and precisely, providing all the information necessary to repair the bug. Insure++ identifies compile-time, runtime and algorithmic errors, including memory corruption, operations on uninitialized, NULL, or "wild" pointers, memory leaks, errors that allocate and free dynamic memory, operations on unrelated pointers, and more. Insure++ finds bugs quickly, and provides a complete diagnosis, including the name of related variables, the line of source code containing the error, a description of the error, and a stack trace.

Optional add-ons modules for Insure++ include Inuse, a graphical "Malloc Monitor" that helps developers understand how their programs manipulate memory and TCA, a test coverage analysis tool that provides information about which pieces of the code have been tested.
