automatic generator of basic unit tests for a C/C++ library API

API Sanity Checker is an automatic generator of basic unit tests for a C/C++ library. It helps to quickly generate simple ("sanity" or "shallow" quality) tests for every function in an API using their signatures, data type definitions and relationships between functions straight from the library header files ("Header-Driven Generation"). Each test case contains a function call with reasonable (in most, but unfortunately not all, cases) input parameters. The quality of generated tests allows one to check absence of critical errors in simple use cases and can be greatly improved by involving of highly reusable specialized types for the library. . The tool can execute generated tests and detect crashes, aborts, all kinds of emitted signals, non-zero program return code, program hang‐ ing and requirement failures (if specified). The tool can be considered as a tool for out-of-box low-cost sanity checking of library API or as a test development framework for initial generation of templates for advanced tests. Also it supports universal Template2Code format of tests, splint specifications, random test generation mode and other useful features.
