Cyclomatic Complexity and CA Gen

As part of the development of pathvIEw, we have introduced a new complexity  metric which is calculated for each action block and procedure step.

We conducted some research into the usefulness of the metric and this shows some interesting results into the use of complexity counts for predicting error rates in code and hence for its use in prioritising testing efforts.

See the research document here: Cyclomatic Complexity and CA Gen.
