Providence, RI (PRWEB) February 23, 2012

Vector Software, the worlds leading provider of innovative software solutions for testing safety and mission critical embedded applications, announced today that fully automatic static source code analysis is now part of the VectorCAST family of products.

VectorCAST/Lint uses the Industry Standard Lint Analysis Engine for C/C++ source code. Lint analysis identifies coding and logic errors in code that is otherwise syntactically correct.

VectorCAST/Lint can examine individual source files or an entire application and provides comprehensive reporting capabilities. The VectorCAST/Lint tool is preconfigured to provide out-of-the box checking for the MISRA C, MISRA C 2004, and MISRA C++ 2008 standards.

The VectorCAST/Lint message browser makes it easy to review errors and warnings in the context of the source file where they occur. Additionally, VectorCAST/Lints message browser displays detailed explanations of the concepts behind the analysis.

Static analysis is the most cost effective method of finding bugs in your code. Typically, developers are able to identify up to 80% of bugs using static analysis. Finding the remaining 20% requires dynamic analysis, stated William McCaffrey Vector Software Chief Operating Officer. VectorCAST/Lint merges the technology of two industry standard tools into a single IDE providing unprecedented efficiency for embedded developers.
