How BoundsChecker settings relate to instrumenting your code.

0 Likes

Problem:

What is the correlation between instrumented builds and various levels of detection?  For example, if I change the setting for "Check for uninitialized memory errors", do I need to re-compile my code?  My guess is that there's only one kind of instrumented build, but I sure can't tell from any docs I can find.

Resolution:

The BoundsChecker settings do not relate directly to the way instrumentation is performed. If you change your error detection settings, you do not need to rebuild your project with BoundsChecker instrumentation. Those settings are only for run-time checking, and may affect the errors reported by an instrumented build in FinalCheck, but won't affect the instrumentation process itself. (There is basically only one kind of instrumented build for BoundsChecker.)
