SMACK: A C/C++ Static Checker Built On LLVM
Another interesting open-source project has tipped up that is powered by the LLVM compiler infrastructure.
LLVM has found its way into many projects from Mono to Gallium3D to in use by, well, just a code compiler. The latest usage of LLVM comes in the form of SMACK, a C/C++ static checker.
SMACK statically checks properties of programs and handles checking user-provided assertions. The tool is open-source and powered by LLVM.
With the code being lowered down into LLVM bit-code, in theory any LLVM-supported language could be used for this static checker but the specific focus is around C and C++ languages.
