    Hi everyone,

    I am currently starting my PhD in software quality assurance and have been doing a lot of reading round this subject. I am just trying to find out if there is any relevant/current research in the production of a generic quality assurance tool i.e. a tool/methodology that can accept many languages for the following areas:
    • Problems in code/coding errors
    • Compiler bugs
    • Language bugs
    • Users mathematical model
    I would greatly appreciate any input and advice in this area, feel free to repost on this topic and/or contact me at:

    Thank you in advance

    I've seen a few that are specific to certain computer languages,
    such as:

    lint for C
    valgrind for C++
    WATFOR for FORTRAN (decades ago)
    WATFIV for FORTRAN (decades ago)

    I haven't seen any that are independent of what computer language
    they are used with.
