Linux Tools - Gcov Support


The Linux Tools Gcov plugin aims to bring the coverage capabilities of Gcov to Eclipse, in a manner that is easy to use for developers of any level of experience.

Current Status

The plugin can parse and display in eclipse gcda and gcno files generated by gcov intrumentation.

Plugin architecture was designed to be compatible with cross-devlopment tools (some additional work may be needed in this case).

Future Plans

  • Support coverage on libraries
  • Enhance online documentation
