Commercial C++ static analysis products are available. Although having such products are great, the cost is just way too much for students and it is usually rather hard to get trial version.
The alternative is to find open source C++ static analysis tools that will run on multiple platforms (Windows and Unix). By using an open source tool, it could be modified to fit certain needs. Finding the tools has not been easy task.
Below is a short list of C++ static analysis tools that were found or suggested by others.
- C++ Check http://sf.net/projects/cppcheck/
- Oink http://danielwilkerson.com/oink/index.html
- C and C++ Code Counter http://sourceforge.net/projects/cccc/
- Splint (from answers)
- Mozilla's Pork (from answers) (This is now part of Oink)
- Mozilla's Dehydra (from answers)
- Use option
-Weffc++for GNU g++ (from answers)
What are some other portable open source C++ static analysis tools that anyone knows of and can be recommended?
