Description mariusz_m 2012-03-05 08:35:16 UTC
Netbeans have quite good C/C++ Simple Test functionality, and I would like to see some basic support for GCOV tool.
After test execution finish, a menu to display, for selected project file, a resulting coverage file, maybe some highlight for lines starting with "#####" (line not executed). Now I can also use it, but have to type command for each file, each time after test is finished.
I think this will make Simple Tests much more functional. This is GCC related only, so.. maybe plugin will be the best choice.

Still no one interested? Sad....
So many tools for Java, probably none for C++

ButtThere is already something like I described for Eclipse:
Actually, the last 2 pictures shows the main functionality.

I am also very interested in using gcov through Netbeans. I have used Netbeans since many years. When I need gcov, I just use gcov raw files... I can say that it isn't practical at all.

So a +1 for this request
Comment 3 mariusz_m 2015-04-03 12:03:46 UTC
I'v found two tools that create coverage report in html format:
- LCOV: (requires Perl)
- GCOVR: (requires Python)

At this point I think these tools are sufficient and there is no longer need to create separate plugin for NB (anyway, no one is interested in making such thing...)
