Abstract:

This report covers the period from 1 June 1977, to 31 May 1978, during which the first of three phases was completed. This phase concentrated on identifying existing strategies for testing and composing new ones for use in the subsequent phases in which software metrics, related to testing, will be developed and tested against a variety of computer programs. The aim of the research is to produce an automatic testing tool which will exhaustively test all tracks through a program, where a track is a time integrated shadow of the execution sequence - where multiple passes through a program segment are recorded as a single pass and the order of usage of the segments is not relevant.
