Debugging with cppcheck¶
7/19/16 update: setup cppcheck v1_58 does not work: ERROR: Product 'cppcheck' (with qualifiers ''), has no v1_58 version (or may not exist) so tried: ups list -aK+ cppcheck and the list is empty.
Checking your code for non-compile time errors with cppcheck.
cppcheck is a very handy tool available for checking your code that gcc can't catch like array out of bound error and can also be used for optimization. The tool is documented here.
It is setup at Fermilab using ups. To do so you can
setup cppcheck v1_58
You then test the code in directory MyDir by doing
cppcheck --enable=style MyDir
It will print out details for optimizing or fixing your code.
