Anyone experimented with a static code analysis tool to detect simple faults,

typing, pointer, array bounds, memory issues ? Call graphs, etc..


I see on web a Stanford and some other study of tools, free and commercial, and

looks like only commercial produces worthwhile analysis. But big $$$$.

There is always lint, should be available with cygwin or any linux distribution :) (Or you pay $389 here: ) Wikipedia is helpful as usual:

I remember an interesting write-up by John Carmack about using static code analysis within id software: . it reflects my experiences when using such tools on large code bases - one needs to be careful not to overwhelm the developers.
