Identify 9 (or more) subject programs, each of which has a size similar to (or larger than) the grep,
sed, or bash programs listed in Table 1 of . These programs should have characteristics similar to
the above grep, sed, and bash programs in the sense that (1) each of them have multiple faulty
versions (preferably with real faults, but systematically seeded faults are also acceptable) and (2)
you can apply the GCOV tool to record the coverage data for each test case execution. Do the
(1) For each subject program, identify 10 or more metamorphic relations (MRs).
(2) For each MR, generate a large number of (minimum 1000) source test cases
(3) Conduct experiments using the faulty versions of the subject programs, the MRs, and the
test cases, in concert with GCC and the GCOV tool, to validate the statement “there is a
significant strong positive correlation between BCMD and the fault-detection effectiveness
of MRs [1, p161].” You can also use tools other than GCC and GCOV for this study.
(4) Report your findings.
