    The Analysis, Prediction, Template Toolkit (APTT) is an integrated set of visualisation tools aimed at the design of continuous-flow, multi-algorithm embedded applications in the multimedia, signal-processing domain. APTT is constrained by a pipelined design pattern, with each stage of the pipeline capable of supporting internal parallelism. APTT includes three tools. The graphical simulation tool...

    Software engineers frequently claim that companies undervalue their software and that they should regard it as a capital asset to be placed on the balance sheet. To a considerable extent, existing accounting regulations permit this but the regulations are only permissive, they do not require it to be treated in this way and, in practice, it rarely is. The author discusses the circumstances in whic... View full abstract»

    Evolutionary testing is a new testing technique for automatically generating test cases which satisfy a given test criterion. For best or worst-case execution time assessment of real-time systems it can be used to generate test cases which minimise or maximise execution times or possibly violate the timing specification of the system. As a typical search or optimisation technique, evolutionary tes... View full abstract»

  • Object-oriented preprocessor fit for C++

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):49 - 58

    C++ retains the ANSI C preprocessor, although its limitations have been widely recognised. The authors describe FOG, a meta-compiler for a super-set of C++, that provides replacement preprocessing and introduces static meta-programming, while preserving the spirit of C++. They show how implementation of preprocessor functionality in an object-oriented style eliminates unnecessary replication from ... View full abstract»
