Captain Obvious

AlanT wants you to write him a program.


Project Creator: AlanT
Budget: $300-1000
Status: Open for Bidding (30 days left)
Required Skills: Programming, Testing / Quality Assurance

Description

The purpose of this project is to create a debugger program. This program will take as input the source code another program, and will analyze that other program and determine if it will run to completion, or have an error, or go into an infinite loop.

To state that another way, given a function f and input x, determine if f(x) will halt.
