Is there any way to do coverage analysis in Python?
While the Python system will check for overt syntax errors (tabs vs spaces
and missing ':' or unmatched quotes), it doesn't handle misspelled names
until the line is executed.
Is there a mode in Python to do coverage analysis - that is to track the
number of times a given line is executed.
What would be cool is a debug mode that would have an integer associated
with every line of every file executed. All counts are initialized to zero.
As a line is executed the count is bumped up by one. At some point you can
dump a module's couts to a file or as a tuple of integers.
Is there any way to hack this in? Ideas??
Also, this might give more insights into where to put optimizations...
