V534. It is likely that a wrong variable is being compared inside the 'for' operator. Consider reviewing 'X'.


The analyzer detected a potential error: a variable referring to an outer loop is used in the condition of the 'for' operator.

This is the simplest form of this error:

for (size_t i = 0; i != 5; i++)
  for (size_t j = 0; i != 5; j++)
    A[i][j] = 0;

It is the comparison 'i != 5' that is performed instead of 'j != 5' in the inner loop. Such an error might be not so visible in a real application. This is the correct code:

for (size_t i = 0; i != 5; i++)
  for (size_t j = 0; j != 5; j++)
    A[i][j] = 0;

According to Common Weakness Enumeration, potential errors found by using this diagnostic are classified as CWE-691.

You can look at examples of errors detected by the V534 diagnostic.
