Automatically insert program flow tracing statements into C++ code

with the free sfk inst command for windows and linux.
- download the free Swiss File Knife Base from Sourceforge.
- open the Windows CMD command line, Mac OS X Terminal or Linux shell.
- OS X : type mv sfk-mac-64.exe sfk and chmod +x sfk then ./sfk
- Linux: type mv sfk-linux-64.exe sfk    and chmod +x sfk then ./sfk
  OS X and Linux syntax may differ, check the help within the tool.
sfk inst [-revoke] [-redo] [-keep-dates] mtkinc mtkmac -dir ...

  instrument c++ sourcecode with calls to sfk micro tracing kernel.

    mtkinc: path and name of mtktrace.hpp file
    mtkmac: mtk block entry macro name, _mtkb_
    revoke: undo all changes (copy backups back)
    keep-dates: on revoke, also reactivate original file dates
    redo  : redo all changes

       sfk inst mtk/mtktrace.hpp _mtkb_ -dir testfiles !save_ -file .cpp

    NOTE: is is recommended NOT to use "-dir ." within batch files to
          ensure that instrumenting is always done on the correct path.

    read more about the sfk micro tracing kernel in the mtk/ dir.
   sfk inst is an experimental command, coming with no support.
   do not check-in any source code modified by this command -
   it is intended only to create experimental, temporary debug
   versions of applications that fail to be traced otherwise.
