BCMS Honours Topic: "Characterising commercial programs with Open Source Software."
OpenPAT is a program characterisation framework that works at the assembly level to analyse the internal operation of programs written in compilable languages. OpenPAT has unique Retargetabilty features that should allow the same instrumentation code base and tools to be used to analyse programs on any OS, compiler or CPU.
The goal of my project is to make use of this feature in order to get OpenPAT working on OSX and with Microsoft's own compiler in the standard Windows environment (currently it is restricted to the GNU/Linux platform).
