Red Lizard Software announces the availability of innovative de-bugging |
software that can slash development time and radically improve software
Goanna software is a fast, scalable and precise static code analysis
solution that detects bugs and other software vulnerabilities
automatically at development time, saving money and helping keep product
launch timetables on track.
Goanna debugging and code-testing software is an Eclipse plug-in and is
now available online for a 30-day FREE trial from Red Lizard Software
A sophisticated spell-checker for software, Goanna detects issues that can
lead to crashes, memory leaks or security vulnerabilities that are hard to
find using traditional testing methods.

(National ICT Australia www.nicta.com.au ) and is the first static code
analysis solution based on model checking technology to detect bugs during
It is well-suited to C/C++ software developers, particularly in embedded
systems industries such as consumer electronics, automotive, aerospace,
telecoms/networks and defense.
Goanna is currently available for C/C++ and is provided as a plug-in for
the Eclipse IDE (Integrated Development Environment) version 3.4. It
supports gcc or gcc-based compilers up to version 4.4. A Microsoft Visual
Studio plug-in is scheduled for release in July 2009.
Why Goanna? Because it blends in with its environment and eats bugs.
