Check out for infomation on
a tool, APIdeduce, that will tell you about an applications usage of API's.
The base version of this tool is available at zero license cost.

The tool works by scanning your source code. Which must be written
in C.


      o There are man pages, a postscript manual and other docs available
          to download.

      o The current version is for Linux and SunOS 4.1.x, Solaris and
          RS/6000 to follow later (no there will not be a windows version
          in the near future).

      o The infomation generated will show you API usage and abusage,
          summarised for a complete application.

      o The catch is that the tool will not give you any specific
          information on API violations in your source (you have to pay
          money to upgrade to get that info).

Comments welcome.
