Abstract

OpenPAT.org is the home of the Open Program Analysis Toolkit project. OpenPAT differs from other program analysis toolkits in that it instruments code statically and gathers dynamic timing, control and data flow information as the instrumented program runs. In this presentation we will review the OpenPAT approach and examine its benefits in comparison with alternative toolkits and then we will create a new tool for OpenPAT with just a few lines of code that can be used to analyse the internal workings of programs written in any compilable language.
