Statement Coverage

Statement Coverage measures how many statements in the source code are executed during test.

Testwell CTC++ counts statements the following way:
  • each semicolon is counted as one statement,
  • control statements, which can be written without ";" (like if) are counted as one statement,
  • empty compound statements, i.e. "{}", are counted as one statement,
  • statements outside of functions are not counted.

The source code in the following example contains six statements: The if-statement in line 2, and the five statements followed by a semicolon in lines 3, 4, 5, 7 and 11. Three of them (if, return and call to foo) have been executed.
