Running tests with test coverage enabled

Anyone ? Is impossible to do or too hard? 
I see it as following:
make a new operation which will:
1) compile the test cases
1) clean the test object (remove fasls of target system to test but not
2) execute necessary startup code (set up the code coverage)
3) run testcases
4) perform teardown code (turn off the code coverage and collect stats etc)

How could I achieve at least this?
