I am trying to use the Code Coverage plugin in the IDE and I can’t get
any good results out of it. Help anyone?
The code is meant for an embedded system but I’m testing it on a x86
platform; it does not interact with Photon. The unit tests work fine
but I can’t get the plugin to give me good numbers. It has erratic
behavior, sometimes crashing outright, sometimes reporting bad
numbers (coverage stops halfway through a source code file),
sometimes not connecting. Is there something in my setup that
prevents it from working correctly, or is the plugin just buggy? The
release notes mention some issues with it.
I am using QNX 6.3.2, IDE 4.0.1, gcc 3.3.5, Windows host (dual-core
P4), x86 target (running in VMWare) and qconn. Otherwise, everything
runs fine. Switching to gcc 2.95.3 doesn’t help.
