Unfortunately not.  It's a commercial package, which is why I've
haven't mentioned it by name on the list.

There is a similar tool, LCLint, which is distributed under the GPL.
When I tried LCLint some years ago, I found it somewhat difficult to
get useful results.  This was especially true at the beggining of a
code cleanup project I was involved in when things were quite messy.

Since being able to share results (and the effort too, if I'm lucky)
is important, I'm willing to give LClint another try.  It may be that
I'll have to take things a little further along with my package before
we can use it effectively.

Andrew> I should also be encouraging people to use Free tools :-)

If possible.  But if there are commercial packages that are available
without Free alternatives, I have no problems using them to develop
free software.
