OCLint: Another Way For Clang Static Code Analysis
Written by Michael Larabel in Free Software on 28 May 2013 at 04:16 AM EDT. 4 Comments
For those looking at new static code analysis tools, OCLint is an open-source utility powered by LLVM's Clang foundation to provide a variety of features when inspecting C, Objective-C, and C++ code-bases. In recent testing of OCLint for an internal C-based Phoronix code-base, OCLint proved to be quite useful.

OCLint is an open-source tool that is powered by LLVM's Clang Tooling to provide detection for a variety of possible bugs, dead code, complicated code, redundant code, bad code smells / practices, and other potential problematic spots.

OCLint is distributed under a BSD license and works on Linux and OS X systems. For those unfamiliar with OCLint but wishing to learn more, visit OCLint.org. OCLint is actively developed with the most recent Git commits happening less than one day ago and their current 0.7 code-base having been recently branched.
