Re: [csmith-dev] Fwd: Re: csmith test harness help

I agree totally, and used to rely heavily on PCLint when I was more a coder than manager.

I believe we do nothing besides -Wall now. Does the clang static analyzer handle C++? I've been meaning to try it out...

No, I understand.  It's still always good to run one's code through as stringent a static analysis tool (splint, -Wall and then some, etc) as possible, no?
