Visual Lint Professional Edition

Visual Lint Professional Visual Lint is an add-in for Microsoft Visual C++ and Visual Studio which closely integrates the Gimpel PC-Lint static code analysis tool within the Visual Studio integrated development environment.

PC-Lint analyses C++ code to identify potential problems. By comparison with a C++ compiler such as that provided with Visual C++, it is highly customisable and very thorough, but (understandably) significantly slower.

Although PC-Lint does a great job of analysing C++ source and header files for potential problems, it is a generic cross-platform tool and as such its integration with development environments is limited. For example, when used with Visual C++ PC-Lint can be used (usually via a custom command on the Tools menu) to scan the current file for warnings and direct the results to the Output Window, or to scan a list of files defined in a text file.

While this level of integration is perfectly adequate under some scenarios (for example when developing new classes), it is less than ideal if you want to perform a complete analysis of an entire project or solution. Furthermore, since PC-Lint does not provide any means of generating useful reports on the results it can be difficult to spot potential problems amongst the mass of results.

If you are working with a large project these limitations can make using PC-Lint to analyse your code time consuming and difficult, which can potentially this can be a real disincentive to using this very useful tool on a regular basis.
