    Inject full source code listing to russian GOST documentation in Microsoft Office format, even if it is huge.




    Improvements in RuC language Uncategorized Open-source

    • C

    RuC is a research language created to resolve issues in C languages. My role in it is in consulting of project members and occasional fixes.


    Equid - a static analysis framework Static analysis Active Highlights Open-source

    • C, C++, Python, Bash

    A sophisticated tool for finding bugs and proving their absence in C/C++ code, this project aims at making analysis easy and worth to apply.


    Race Researcher Static analysis

    • C#

    A graphical interface to Race static analyzer, allowing to quickly spot locking failures.


    Codename Race Static analysis Highlights

    • C#

    A static analyzer aimed at finding race conditions in the Linux code. It uses Lockset algorithm with sophisticated selection of executed function pairs, and it has proven to be quite useful in production. The C parsing has been implemented through Roslyn patches.


    Custom static analyzer for router software Commercial EXTERNAL

    • C#

    Since we had a host controller driver which was fatally flawed regarding locking, I've made a custom static analyzer to deal with locking problems. It was based on Roslyn patched to support C.

    ResourcePacker Windows Mobile Open-source

    • VB.NET

    The tool can be used to pack resource-only files to a heavily reduced Portable Executable. That results in significant savings and may improve robustness on Windows Mobile 6.x devices by less exploitation of shared memory slots.


    DevHealthAnalyzer Windows Mobile Open-source

    • VB.NET

    The tool to analyze virtual memory on Windows Mobile 6.x. Moreover, it gives understanding what to and how to improve in order to get better software robustness. It can be used to determine the most memory-hungry libraries. Then you can reversmod them (reversmodded libraries reserve less ram than recmodded ones) or make r/w sections shared to improve situation.
