C/C++ Error Highlighting Metrics

Accuracy metric

The ratio of reported errors to the amount of errors reported by compiler.

Code base for test:

  • front end negative tests?
  • GCC negative tests?

(Negative tests contain code examples, on which compiler should fail)

It would be fine to get this in accordance with supposed error frequency. How to do this? - TBD

Inaccuracy metric

The ratio of reported false negatives to the amount of LOC (lines of code) on compilable configured projects

(False negative is an error reported when the code is correct)

The proposed project list:

  1. quote
  2. freeway
  3. loki
  4. clucene
  5. litesql
  6. Perl(?)
  7. Python(?)
  8. MySQL(?)
  9. ddd(?)
  10. TBD
