"Please check this project too..."

We believe that the best way of promoting our static code analyzer PVS-Studio is using it to check famous open source projects (like Chromium, Clang, WinMerge and many others) and writing articles on the check results. This task is not so simple because, unfortunately, PVS-Studio is just a tool, not a magical program that can find all the errors itself. People often write to us asking to check this or that project and write an article on it.

We appreciate when people send us links to interesting projects many programmers will be interested to read about. Please send us your suggestions. To make them constructive, note several points before you send us a letter:

  • Make sure that the project you want to tell us about is written in C or C++
  • The project must compile without errors in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 or higher.
  • The project must have a .sln-file for Visual Studio. In some cases, .sln-file can be generated through using CMake-scripts – please check it out. We will NOT be able to check the project quickly and easily if it uses alternative compilers and/or build technologies.

Please make sure that the project meets these three conditions before telling us its name.

Looking forward to your letters!
