This review is presented in 3 questions due to the amount of code:

  1. Part A contains the Lexical Analyzer and the main portion of the unit test code.
  2. Part B (this question) contains the lower level unit tests called in Part A
  3. Part C contains common unit test code that is included in all of the unit tests to be written.

Background

Back in June I provided this answer to a question here on code review. I advised the person that asked the question to use enums rather than numbers to represent the opcodes, but upon further consideration I thought that the virtual machine really needed an editor as the front end and I have been working on that. An editor will require a translator to convert text into the numbers the virtual machine uses for opcodes and operands. The translator is composed of a parser and a lexical analyzer. The lexical analyzer is complete, unit tested and debugged so I am presenting it here for code review with the unit tests.

This program is written in C because the original question was written in C. I tried to stick to the C90 standard as much as possible, but I did include _strdup() which is in the latest standard (perhaps it is strdup() in the latest standard, but Visual Studio suggested _strdup()).

Why did I write unit tests for the lexical analyzer?

  1. It is a best practice at many companies that do software development.
  2. The code was very complex, at the time it was not a state machine (unit testing convinced me to go that route). It was over 450 lines of un-commented code in the parser module and growing.
  3. I had gotten to the point where I wanted to test/debug the lexical analyzer and the parser wasn't working so I wanted a program that ran only the lexical analyzer.
  4. I wanted to test/debug the code in a bottom up manner to make sure the lowest level functions were working correctly before testing the higher level functions.

The benefits of unit testing were that it forced me to create a more modular design and to redesign the lexical analyzer to use a state machine rather another method. The results are less code and a better working lexical analyzer. It will also force a redesign of the parser, but that is for another question.

Questions

I learned C a long time ago from K&R “The C Programming Language” Version 1 (pre C89/C90).

  1. Other than compiling this –O3 what can I do to optimize this code?
  2. Are there any features in the more modern versions of C that could reduce the amount of code?
  3. Is there archaic C usage that is not customary to use anymore?
  4. Are the unit tests missing any test cases, especially edge cases?
  5. Are there any memory leaks?
  6. Is the code readable?
  7. I don’t like the fact that I need to include some of the unit test files in internal_sytax_state_tests.c do you see any way around this?

Code Available:

Rather than copy and pasting this code it is available in my GitHub Repository. The code as presented in these 3 questions is on the branch Before_First_Code_Review, updates including those based on the review will be added to the master branch.

The unit test ouput is always saved to a .txt file, a comparison text file is the unit test folder in the repository. The unit test output is 1827 lines so it is not included here in the question.

There is a CMakeLists.txt file in the unit test directory, but I'm not sure it works so it isn't posted here. If anyone would like to test it, let me know what to do or how to fix it. I could give you permission to update it in GitHub.

internal_character_transition_unit_tests.c

/*
 * internal_character_transition_unit_tests.c
 *
 * This file contains the lowest level of unit testing for the lexical analyzer.
 * It tests the lexical state transitions for particular characters. While it
 * is a C source file rather than a header file it is included by static functions
 * internal_sytax_state_tests.c because it is testing within lexical_analyzer.c.
 * The file internal_sytax_state_tests.c is included by lexical_analyzer.c. as
 * well. This file was separated out of internal_sytax_state_tests.c because at
 * some point that file became too large and complex.

Small review.

Minor

Simplify. Instead of

unsigned char* input = (unsigned char*)"0123456789ABCDEFXabcdefx";  // size is currently 24
#define MAX_INPUT_CHARACTERS    24
State_Transition_Characters expected_transition[MAX_INPUT_CHARACTERS];
...
#undef MAX_INPUT_CHARACTERS

Consider

unsigned char input[] = "0123456789ABCDEFXabcdefx";
State_Transition_Characters expected_transition[sizeof input - 1];

Is the code readable?

I'd make more use of pointers to const to help convey the idea referenced data does not change.
