“Function” as Coverage Type
A new coverage type, Function coverage, is available in VectorCAST version 2019 SP1. Its implementation is lightweight, making it especially suitable for customers using ISO-26262 Industry mode.
Function coverage type is supported only for C/C++ Unit Test and System Testing environments. A subprogram is considered covered 100% in Function coverage if it is entered during test execution, and 0% if it is not.
Due to the addition of this new coverage type, the configuration option VCAST_DISPLAY_FUNCTION_COVERAGE has no effect when used with the Function coverage type.
In the environment script, this coverage type is written as:
clicast -e <unit test env> TOols COVer FUNCTION
clicast -e <cover env> [-u <unit>] COVer INstrument FUNCTION
When using Function coverage with a vcshell database, use one of these commands after creating the database and setting the compiler template:
For Stub None (Object Files) environments:
vcutil parse --instrument function
For parallel instrumentation of a Cover environment:
vcutil instrument --coverage_type function
