Chronology

PC-lint Plus is Released  (October 2017)

Due to the increased complexity introduced by each new version of C++, the decision was made to develop a new product with full C++ support but also based on t he features, checks, options, and messages of our beloved PC-lint. PC-lint Plus was released with complete C, C++11 and C++14 support and our developers continue to push the envelope in adding new and innovative capabilities to the exciting world of static analysis.
