Unfortunately, we are no longer developing or supporting the CppCat static code analyzer. Please read here for details.

As many of you know, we develop two code analyzers intended for checking C/C++ projects: PVS-Studio and CppCat. Despite our attempts to make the difference between the two as distinct and obvious as possible, there is still one question that developers keep asking: What are the target audiences of PVS-Studio and CppCat? Below is the answer to this question in one picture.

Use PVS-Studio to search for bugs in C, C++, C# and Java code

We offer you to check your project code with PVS-Studio. Just one bug found in the project will show you the benefits of the static code analysis methodology better than a dozen of the articles.

goto PVS-Studio;
