thread227-208347: Software Complexity Analysis

In line with the closed thread above, does anyone come across with any tool for managing complexities for state machines implemented in C/C++/C# ?

RE: cyclomatic complexity tools in C for state machines

Not yet... though to be fair I haven't put much time into looking for one.  I'm just real careful when making state machines.

RE: cyclomatic complexity tools in C for state machines

You are right, care should be taken when creating state machines but it can get out of hand e.g. it becomes a state machine within a state machine within a state machine with each state machine having really a huge number of states each with really numerous number of entry and exit conditions.  I haven't seen any white paper addressing this complexity issue.  A visualization tool is necessary for this kind of software engine implementation that I think the original writer of this thread need to be aware of when he was looking for software tools.  Think of it as a CAD/CAE tools for implementing complex software state machines. Seen MATLAB Stateflow or SGV sarc Crystal flow.  Any feedbacks regarding these tools or other tools?
