Title On the use of "automatic" software quality tools
Abstract Modern computer codes have typically evolved over many years, leading to the dusty-deck problem. We take two large scientific application codes and apply software quality assurance tools to assess whether the use of these tools can help in solving this problem. We find that with care the tools are useful, though far from automatic, and that when used carelessly they can lead to code which no longer works.
