Static analysis analyses the code and provides an understanding of the code structure. The tool’s capabilities include programming standards checking, structured programming verification, complexity metric production, full variable cross reference, unreachable code reporting, static data flow analysis, information flow analysis, loop analysis of recursive procedures and procedure interface analysis.

Dynamic analysis is potentially the most powerful module in the LDRA tool suite. Its use during both software development and maintenance cycles can have a dramatic effect on a program’s robustness and reliability. Dynamic coverage analysis reports on the effectiveness of test data by means of coverage metrics. They are termed as statement coverage (TER1), branch/decision coverage (TER2), LCSAJ Coverage (TER3), procedure/function call coverage (P/FCall), branch condition coverage (BCC), branch condition combination coverage (BCCC) and modified condition decision coverage (MC/DC) for D0-178B Level A.

The tool suite is available for C, C++, Ada83, Ada95, Java, Assemblers (Intel, Freescale, Texas Instruments, ARM).

The tool suite platform availability is Windows Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000/NT, Unix (Sun Solarix & HP-UX), Linux (Red Hat/Fedora, SUSE, Debian, Thalix) & Open VMS (Alpha & IA-64 Itanium).
