latest fio source code check using cppcheck

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I was going through my own source code attempting to clean up the code
and spotted the new drop of fio.  On occasion I write something in C
which gets passed along so I do try to maintain proper coding, I
recently took to checking my code with cppcheck to make sure it would
atleast pass static coding checks.

cppcheck is opensource and available at sourceforge, I am using the
latest version not the one that comes in most linux distros. 

CAVEAT EMPTOR - static code checks can generate some false hits

>From the root directory of the latest git of the source 

cppcheck --enable=all -f .
or if you want more detail in the error reports
cppcheck --enable=all -f -v .

That will force a check of all ifdefs (yes fio has a bunch) and return
all possible errors and style based issues.

To keep it brief a quick cut and paste instead of the entire return.

The result of the --check-config

For completeness.
