eternaldoctorwho writes: Research has been underway to produce a coffee bean plant that naturally has no or little caffeine content. Now, it looks like that might become a reality in the near future: Paulo Mazzafera of the University of Campinas in Brazi has come closer than ever with a strain containing "only 2% of normal caffeine levels". Coffee anyone?

Well I'm coding for an embedded linux environment in C and C++, so java tools won't help. I am more interested in the tools that can generate a call-stack and trace through the execution path to show you how a null-pointer dereference might come about. I was looking at Klockwork Insight, but the price tag is practically my salary for the number of licenses we would need. Has anyone worked with that tool specifically?
