Default Bug#495992: ITP: failsafec - memory-safe implementation of the full ANSI C language

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

Package name: failsafec
Upstream Author: Yutaka OIWA <y.oiwa@aist.go.jp>
URL: https://staff.aist.go.jp/y.oiwa/FailSafeC/index-en.html
License: THE Q PUBLIC LICENSE version 1.0
Description: memory-safe implementation of the full ANSI C language
It detects and disallows all unsafe operations, yet conforming
to the full ANSI C standard (including casts and unions) and
even supporting many "dirty tricks" common in many existing
programs which do not strictly conform to the standard.
This work also proposes several techniques---both compile-time
and runtime--- to reduce the overhead of runtime checks. By
using the Fail-Safe C compiler, programmers can easily make
their programs safe without performing heavy rewriting or
porting of their code.
