The paper describes a systematic approach for automatically introducing data and code redundancy into an existing program written using a high-level language. The transformations aim at making the program able to detect most of the soft-errors affecting data and code, independently of the Error Detection Mechanisms (EDMs) possibly implemented by the hardware. Since the transformations can be automatically applied as a pre-compilation phase, the programmer is freed from the cost and responsibility of introducing suitable EDMs in its code. Preliminary experimental results are reported, showing the fault coverage obtained by the method, as well as some figures concerning the slow-down and code size increase it causes
