The Program Database Toolkit (PDT) is a powerful tool infrastructure that provides access to the high-level interface of source code for analysis tools and applications.
Many tasks in an integrated programming environment require access to program information for their implementation. Program Database Toolkit (PDT) is a framework for analyzing source code written in several programming languages and for making rich program knowledge accessible to developers of static and dynamic analysis tools.
PDT implements a standard program representation, the program database (PDB), that can be accessed in a uniform way through a class library supporting common PDB operations. Software tools can use this library to accomplish tasks such as
- documentation of program components
- creation of graphic program browsers that show class hierarchies, function call graphs, and template instantiations
- insertion of instrumentation for performance profiling and tracing; andgeneration of interface details for calling library routines or buildinginterlanguage bindings.
- This version adds support for the ARM Linux platform, the ROSE parser for C, C++, and UPC, the MAQAO binary rewriter, and the TAU source instrumentor.
