Design of Software Inspection Tool
Although software inspection has led to improvements in software quality, many software systems continue to be deployed with unacceptable numbers of errors, even when software inspection is part of the development process. The difficulty of manually verifying that the software under inspection conforms to the rules is partly to blame. The authors describe the design and development of a tool designed to help alleviate this problem. The tool provides mechanisms for inspection of software by exposing the results of sophisticated whole-program static analysis to the inspector.
