About Squish Coco

Squish Coco is a complete code coverage tool chain for C and C++ applications that can run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Unix. Squish Coco provides a wrapper for standard compilers (including GCC and Visual Studio) that instruments the source code that the compiler sees (without touching the original code). If the instrumented application's test suite is run the application will report all kinds of useful information, including:

  • Dead (never executed) code.
  • Optimal test execution order so as to maximize the overall test coverage for each run.
  • Redundant tests.
  • Untested code.

In addition, Squish Coco can compare two different versions of an application (e.g., current and candidate releases) to see what effects their differences have on their tests and test coverage.

Squish Coco can be used at every stage of testing and in conjunction with every kind of testing method (unit tests, automated tests, manual tests, etc.), and can collect and merge different tests' execution reports to support advanced analysis.

Squish Coco consists of two tools and an optional add-on:

  • CoverageScanner—this tool analyzes and instruments C and C++ applications.
  • CoverageBrowser—this tool provides an easy to use GUI which can manage and display the coverage analysis results.
  • An optional Microsoft Visual Studio add-on, which can generate code coverage configurations for C and C++ projects directly from inside the Visual Studio IDE.

Squish Coco supports the following kinds of coverage:

  • Condition coverage
  • Condition/decision coverage
  • Decision coverage
  • Function coverage
  • Statement coverage
