Australian startup Guardsoft has announced that they’re hooking up with HPC hardware manufacturer Cray, Inc. Cray will license Guardsoft’s novel debugging software into its environment for developers

Cray logoGuardsoft is based on innovative research and development led by Monash University’s Professor David Abramson in the Faculty of Information Technology. It uses a new technique called “relative” debugging, which allows programmers to trace errors introduced into software as it is modified, or ported from one system to another. Unlike traditional debugging techniques, relative debugging compares the execution of a new program with a reference version that is known to work.
