I think the name runToolOnCode better, too. Also, how about making the file name a parameter? That way, users can simply provide a different file name if it conflicts or if they want an easy way to say it's code that isn't C++ (e.g, by naming it input.c).

Otherwise, I'd say this patch is ready to go in!
