The instrumentation is done in three passes; pass 1 will execute compiler/linker and analyze the amount of unresolved externals, pass 2 will generate and compile instrumentation code, and pass 3 will link it all together.
It is possible to ask the instrumenter to skip pass 3, so that the linking can be done manually. This is done
by using the option
-nl. This will make the instrumenter stop after pass2 and generate the file
testape.o that contains the instrumentation code.
-o is used to troubleshoot problems. When present, the command lines for each pass is shown,
and the intermediate files are kept.
-mgw is used with gcc to activate MinGw support on windows. TestApe cannot reliably detect the
precense of MinGW gcc compiler, but with this option the instrumenter can be forced to mingw gcc mode.
Upon exit, the instrumenter will alert, if a never version of the packages exists. The option
used to disable this check.
compiler parameters or
linker arguments can be one or more parameters normally
reconized by gcc/ld/LINK or CL.
It has been a long time since last official release and the list of bugfixes, features and supported platforms accumulating in the beta has grown substantially. I am happy to annouce that a new release is ready.more

New is this release are support for floating point validations and function mocking. Also, MinGW has been added to the list of supported platforms.more
TestApe forum is now hosted on Proboards. Support questions can be posted here or send directly on email. Due to ...more
TestApe can now be used with MinGW GCC on windows. Also supported in this beta are floating point types in validations or when mocking functionsmore
A small fix for webtty scripts, to allow the usage from Apple IPads. Tab on textarea to bring up IPad keyboard - you may have to scroll webpage beneath keyboard, in order to actually see what you're typing.
This release contains a new flexible mocking system with default mocks automatically generated for unresolved functions. Installation packages are available for GCC/Linux, GCC/CygWin as well Visual Studio 2009/Windows XP or Vista.more
