For more information on how to use LCOV, enter "man lcov". In addition,
there is further documentation and a usage example available in the CVS
repository for the LTP project. To obtain these files, go to
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ltp/ and follow the CVS instructions to
check out module "utils". Once you have all the files checked out using
cvs, you can find the LCOV directory in utils/analysis/lcov.
Hope this helps.
