    Now I wonder how long until someone is offended by "GIMPLE SSA" and that gets a name change like weboob and master/slave to make easily triggered people happy.

      How is it compared to alternatives?

      Cppcheck, llvm one, Coverity...

        Agreed.

        IMHO the "easily triggered" never learned how to wear "big boy pants" because their "helicopter parents" never let them grow up properly.

          Bulldozer parenting has replaced the helicopters in certain demographic groups.

            The fuck is bulldozer parenting? Buying your kid an FX-8350 and making them believe it really has 8 cores?

              For one, it is not yet as language complete, nor quite as extensive, but it is an important first step (as it builds a framework). While all the analysis tools you mention report a few common issues in some code bases, each tend to identify at least a few things the other does not, resulting in value to review the results from all (with the caveat that you have to be careful not to spend so much time looking for nits that you never ship). The friendly "competition" between compilers such as gcc and llvm has resulted in the good ideas from the other being recognized as being positive, and with the developers looking to try to provide something better.

                Low blow. A "core" wasn't well defined at that time, and it still isn't. That lawsuit was so bullshit, I didn't even claim the amount I could have because I still felt like I received a fair product after rummaging through their reasoning for the payout. You can clearly see a program scale per advertised core and it worked as intended, and did so especially well for the price-point.

                  we'll see the language support added
                  Did you mean language server support?

                    Yeah, because the only way someone can turn in an helicopter is if their parents also are.

                    Sorry to tell you that it's many of the parents using expressions like "big boy pants" that are responsible for people not growing up correctly.

                    Helicopter parents happen now, when the failures of the "big boy pants" parents reached reproductive age. They are not good parents either, but it's naive to blame them for basically creating themselves.
