The SANTE tool: value analysis, program slicing and test generation for C program debugging. This short paper presents a prototype tool called SANTE (static analysis and testing) implementing an original method combining value analysis, program slicing and structural test generation for verification of C programs. First, value analysis is called to generate alarms when it can not guarantee the absence of errors. Then the program is reduced by program slicing. Alarm-guided test generation is then used to analyze the simplified program(s) in order to confirm or reject alarms.
