Klocwork Insight 9.5 changes the entire usage model for source code analysis and removes the remaining barriers to developer adoption of this technology, claims software vendor Klocwork. For the first time, C/C++ developers can access sophisticated source code analysis using the simple usability model of a spell checker. The new release introduces an on-the-fly user model, where a developer’s interaction with the tool has been dramatically simplified.
On-the-fly analysis, similar to the spell check feature in popular word processors, enables Klocwork Insight to instantly underline defects as developers are writing their code. In the background, sophisticated syntax and dataflow analysis, build comprehension, and incremental analysis are continuously running to ensure thorough and highly accurate identification of security vulnerabilities and critical defects within milliseconds.
