Abstract: There exist various approaches to software testing and one popular approach is |path coverage|, in which emphasis is placed on testing all possible paths that can be executed in a programme module. This paper describes a novel approach in designing test cases using control flow criteria for path coverage.

Keywords: regular expressions; algorithms; graph theory; path coverage; software testing; control flow criteria; ICT.
