Klockwork Add Functionality for Analysing Whole Program Space
Klocwork have announced new capabilities for Klocwork Insight, which aim to address two issues related to multicore and multiprocessor development.
The first, fixes the problem of heterogeneous processor architectures requiring developers to ensure data interaction with the target processor is in the proper endian format. Now, Klockwork flags instances where data is being transmitted to or from the target without being transformed. Secondly, developers can now analyse the whole program space to identify solutions where potential conflicts occur, in an effort to ensure parallel processes don't conflict with one another.
These new capabilities will be generally available as part of Klocwork Insight 9.2 in October 2010.
