V2547. MISRA. The return value of non-void function should be used.

This diagnostic rule is based on the software development guidelines developed by MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association).

It is possible to call a non-void function without using its return value afterward. There could be an error behind such behavior.

Values returned by non-void functions must always be used. Example of non-compliant code:

int Foo(int x)
{
  return x + x;
}

void Bar(int x)
{
  Foo(x);
}

If the loss of the return value was planned by the developer, it can be cast to the type 'void'. Example of compliant code:

void Bar(int x)
{
  (void)Foo(x);
}

This diagnostic is classified as:

  • MISRA-C-17.7
  • MISRA-CPP-0.1.7
  • AUTOSAR-A0.1.2
