Design By Contract Survey

Concordia University's Dependable Software Research Group is studying the use of assertions in Eiffel, and invites developers of open source and proprietary Eiffel applications to participate in a quantitative research survey of the use of DBC and assertions in Eiffel.

Participation involves running a Perl5 script against your Eiffel files, generating some metrics which you then upload.

This has been discussed in several forums, where concern was raised about running someone else's script on your machine. Consensus seemed to be that the script is harmless. Joseph Kiniry endorsed the survey, describing it as "both interesting and useful", and encouraged everyone to consider taking it.
