PVS-Studio: looking for bugs on Windows and Linux

A team of developers of PVS-Studio analyzer that is designed to search for errors in programs written in C, C++ and C# has released a version of their tool for Linux. Previously there was a possibility to do the analysis of the projects only in Windows, now the support is added also for the second most popular platform.

PVS-Studio is easily integrated into any build system on Linux. You can check CMake- and autoconf projects, build the analyzer into any development environment, due the output format that is similar to the compiler format and even integrate into any non-standard Makefile.
The product is available as .deb, .rpm or .tgz packages. Soon we'll launch our own repositories for a convenient auto-updating of the tool.

The code can be checked on the build server and on the machine of the developer. We recommend using both variants. In case the bug is found on the developer's machine before it got to the version control system, the analyzer is a real helper. It helped the developer to make sure no one will know that he made an error. You shouldn't also forget about the check on the build server. Sometimes developers "miss" the analyzer warnings due to various reasons. Regular overnight checks help to make sure that there are no bugs in the code.

Meanwhile, PVS-Studio guys are already writing articles about the checks of Linux kernel, KDE, GNOME and other Linux-oriented projects.

The distribution kit of the analyzer Linux version as an archive and deb/rpm packages is available at this link: http://www.viva64.com/en/pvs-studio-download-linux/.

Welcome to the Ranch
We have a forum where adverts for such tools usually go, so I am duplicating this discussion there.
