Re: [SystemSafety] Qualification of libraries

Actually there are three main C and C++ test suites. The two Derek mentioned (one of which he distributes ) and the Solid Sands test suite, formerly the ACE test suite which has a 30 year history. CAVEAT: Phaedrus Systems distributes Solid Sands in the UK.

I have a couple of videos on compiler testing, one by the author of the Solid Sands test suite

and one by an Independent consultant, Olwen Morgan about compiler testing in general that discusses all three main test suites

There is also one important question: Is this a hosted or self-hosted system?
The requirements for a hosted library are not the same as a self-hosted system.

I know Solid Sands provide a qualification kit that is used by several compilers

compiler qualification kit. I'd appreciate any kind of hints and comments.

The most extensive compiler C/C++ qualification tests are the Perennial and PlumHall validation suites. is-21-today/
