A while back I wrote an article that compared cppcheck and clang’s static analyzers (clang-check and clang-tidy). The folks who make PVS-Studio (the guys with the unicorn mascot that you’ve probably been seeing a lot of lately) saw the article, and suggested that I take a look at their Linux port, which was then in beta test, and write about it.
So I did. Read on for an overview of PVS-Studio, and how it compared to cppcheck.
