SAFE Corporation Announces CodeMeasure
for Measuring Software Development Progress
SAFE Introduces a New Website dedicated
to CodeMeasure, the First Language Independent Solution
for Tracking Software Evolution Across Multiple Versions
CUPERTINO, CA (April 20, 2010) - Software Analysis
& Forensic Engineering Corporation, the leading
provider of forensic software tools for software copyright
and trade secret analysis, today announced the release
of CodeMeasure. CodeMeasure is the first language independent
solution for quantifying software evolution by analyzing
changes across multiple versions of code. In addition,
SAFE is launching a new website, www.CodeMeasure.com,
an online store focused on providing information, examples,
and support for CodeMeasure.
"The bottom line for me is that CodeMeasure is
a simple, easy-to-use utility that gives me some new
insights about a code base," stated Larry Daniele,
president of Companion Software and an early beta user
CodeMeasure is built on SAFE's leading forensic technology
and uses a more advanced code difference algorithm than
the typical positional algorithms used by most free
tools. The CodeMeasure algorithm is fast and makes analyzing
code changes across multiple versions of software possible,
processing tens of thousands of files and tens of millions
of lines of code in minutes (see examples at CodeMeasure
Performance). CodeMeasure is also language independent,
providing a single tool able to track evolution on any
code development project.
"At SAFE, we are focused on analyzing software
and looking for reliable, repeatable metrics that we
can use to help direct our more detailed forensic analyses.
After receiving positive feedback on an article we published
Changes in Software with CLOC at Embedded.com) about
using changed lines of code to measure software evolution,
we decided to create an easy-to-use tool to report these
metrics," said Bob Zeidman, president of SAFE Corporation.
"We were excited to realize the performance of
our algorithm would allow us to analyze multiple versions
of software and show developers how their code has evolved
from release to release."
CodeMeasure is available now and can be purchased online
A single machine permanent license is $1,000 including
updates for 1 year.
