Word for a logic path execution counter?
Posted on 2013-01-23
Hello, I'm proposing a debugging/profiling technique in which we set up some add'l variables that count the number of times a certain logic path is executed within our code.
For reasons I won't bore you with (I'm trying to persuade people to make a little effort to use these), I feel like what I call this type of variable will be important.
I feel like there is some computer-science-y technical term out there that I should be using, but otherwise I'd like to think of a snappy term that immediately calls to mind its purpose (whether literal or by analogy).
(Oddball question I know, but you guys have generally knocked these out of the park.)
