PVS-Studio for Linux

    PVS-Studio for LinuxIt happened! Today we released the public version of the PVS-Studio analyzer for Linux. Now Linux application developers will receive a new powerful weapon for fighting bugs in the code. We urge to spread this news around the world. Tell your colleagues at work, write on Twitter and Facebook! Let the programs be more reliable and stable!

    Starting with version 6.10, the PVS-Studio analyzer supports not only Windows, but also the Linux platform.

    PVS-Studio performs static code analysis and generates a report that helps the programmer find and fix errors. PVS-Studio performs a wide range of code checks, but is most powerful at finding typos and the consequences of a failed Copy-Paste. Illustrative examples of such errors: V501 , V517 , V522 ,V523 , V571 , V611 .

    The Windows version of the analyzer is still available here . The analyzer integrates with Visual Studio 2010-2015 or can be used separately in Standalone mode.

    The new Linux version (.deb, .rpm, .tgz) is available for download on the page:

    We also recommend that you immediately read the documentation section" How to run PVS-Studio on Linux . " If something is not clear or something does not work, we will be happy to help you, ask questions in the mail.

    To receive a registration key for acquaintance with the tool - write to us. Over time, the process of obtaining a demo version may change, but now it is important for us to understand who is downloading the analyzer, how it is used, what problems arise and so on.

    PS In the first days after the release of the Linux version, a wave of reviews and questions can “cover” us. Therefore, if we answer the questions with a delay, we ask you to understand and forgive.

    UPDMost programmers have a poor idea of ​​what PVS-Studio for Linux means. Many people think that all the complexity is in porting the code, however it is very far from the truth: porting the code is very simple, however it is only 5% of the work. The rest of the work is hidden from an outside observer and consists in solving many infrastructure issues. We suggest you look into the kitchen of the developers of the PVS-Studio analyzer and find out different interesting nuances of their work.
