PC-lint and FlexeLint for C/C++ Version 9.00
(Collegeville, PA, September 2, 2008) ... Gimpel Software announces the release of
Version 9.00 of its award-winning products PC-lint for C/C++ and FlexeLint for
C/C++. This is the first new version of the product since the release of Version 8.0
PC-lint/FlexeLint is a static analyzer
that will analyze a mixed suite of C and C++ programs and report on bugs, glitches
and inconsistencies. It aids in developing more secure, reliable, maintainable and portable
programs. It will speed program development and help to control costs by alerting the
programmer to suspect code early in the cycle, when corrections can be made
easily and economically.
Version 9.00 provides a multitude of enhancements, including many new innovative checks,
features and options
This version adds static variable tracking to the suite of value tracking capabilities
that already include inter-statement and inter-function value tracking.
It also supports pre-compiled headers that can dramatically
increase processing speed.
Additional new features include a comprehensive multi-thread analysis, stack usage analysis,
program information dump, enhanced message control and message portrayal (html output, optional
integration with source code), MISRA C 2004 checking and MISRA C++ checking.
Version 9.00 has 146 new messages that serve to highlight dangling assignments,
for clause irregularities, pre-determined predicates, unusual const qualification,
irregular use of pointers and references and much more.
PC-lint/FlexeLint Version 9.00 is upward compatible with and includes the
same rigorous checking as earlier versions of the product. These
checks include pointer tracking, strong type checking, loss of precision, strange uses of Booleans,
inter-function value tracking, optional multi-pass operation, analysis of calls to library
functions and much more. Rules are available to specify user-defined function semantics, For more
