In this UE4 tutorial, we will look over the general process of static analysis of C++ code and then get specific in how this is done using PVS-Studio.
We all know that no one writes perfect code. There's always a chance that there will appear bugs, even in big projects such as Unreal Engine. And that's the reason why even in UE4 static analysis in very important. We can safely say that having any kind of static analyser is a m...June 20, 2020

In this video, you'll find out more about one of the ways how to improve your C++ code which by applying static analysis tools. Despite the fact that every programmer strives to write flawless code and compute everything on the fly, it's hard even for an experienced professional. Here's where a static analyzer comes in handy.
Not only does it complement compiler's work, it also gives reasons for the occurrence of some errors...May 8, 2020
We bring to your attention the presentation of “PVS-Studio in 2019”. The fact is that from time to time our users ask if there is any material that overviews the analyzer's capabilities, describes what it is, and so on. For this reason, we decided to record this presentation, in which I will tell you what PVS-Studio is, what features it has, and so on, so that you can learn about it in general. There will be many different links in this presen...Oct. 22, 2019
We regularly check various open-source projects (Tizen OS, Linux kernel, Chromium, Unreal Engine 4, CryEngine V, Mono, Qt and others) with PVS-Studio and send analysis results to developers and usually describe them in our posts as well. Besides, we add them into our bug database - https://www.viva64.com/en/examples/Sept. 25, 2017
Static code analysis is the process of detecting errors and defects in a software source code. Static analysis can be viewed as an automated code review process.
You can get a better understanding of the methodology of static analysis, studying the following materials:
SonarQube is an open source platform, designed for continuous analysis and measurement of code quality.
More than a year PVS-Studio has a plugin for the integrating the results of the work in SonarQube. Thanks to it, the abilities of detection critical errors in C/C++/C#/Java can be expanded by the functionality of the quality monitoring. PVS-Studio and SonarQube greatly complement each other, allowing building a powerful factory to bring the ...Aug. 2, 2017
The second and final part of video where we discuss how PVS-Studio makes it easy to adopt static code analysis in a large project. If you missed the first part of our presentation, please refer to this link: https://www.viva64.com/en/video/65/
In this chapter we demonstrate how the incremental analysis feature of PVS-Studio helps you save time required for code analysis both on a developer's computer and on a build server. We also describe how...March 24, 2017
In this video we discuss possible difficulties related to introducing static code analysis to an existing project with a large legacy code base, and how PVS-Studio helps to resolve these difficulties. In particular, we demonstrate how to suppress all the messages reported on legacy code and focus on the issues in new code only. We also describe in detail the PVS-Studio plugin for Microsoft Visual Studio, and how PVS-Studio can be integrated wi...March 17, 2017
This video shows how to install the PVS-Studio for Linux and to check Far Manager for bugs.
