How to Uninstall or Install api-sanity-checker on Ubuntu 22.04

Updated: October 20, 2022

API Sanity Checker is an automatic generator of basic unit tests for a C/C++ library. It helps to quickly generate simple (“sanity” or “shallow” quality) tests for every function in an API using their signatures, data type definitions and relationships between functions straight from the library header files (“Header-Driven Generation”). Each test case contains a function call with reasonable (in most, but unfortunately not all, cases) input parameters. The quality of generated tests allows one to check absence of critical errors in simple use cases and can be greatly improved by involving of highly reusable specialized types for the library. In this tutorial, I will show you ways to install api-sanity-checker Ubuntu 22.04.

Prerequisites to install
