    Boundary condition

    Hello,

    I have an application running in embedded system, developed in C. We are using small memory model.

    We are hardly allocating memory using DMA( i.e using malloc).

    I have been told to do boundary condition testing. Can anybody please explain me, what does that mean in plain Engish?

    Thanks,
    Juganoo

    Given a bounrdy (a start and a finish) make sure that a given value falls within that range.
    Code:
    int array[10];
    int too_low = -1, too_high = 10;
    int error = 0xDEAD;
    
    array[too_low] = error;
    array[too_high] = error;
    Vola. An example of going outside the given boundries.

    Quzah.
    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
