CppDepend 2023: C/C++ Analysis Tool Update

CppDepend 2023.1: Enhance Code Quality with Maintainability Index, SARIF Import, and False Positives Exclusion

Maintainability Index

The latest version includes a Maintainability Index, which helps developers assess the maintainability of their code. The index is calculated using various metrics, including code complexity and design, and provides a single, easy-to-understand score that gives developers a quick understanding of the state of their codebase.

Sarif import

Another key feature in version 2023.1 is the ability to import SARIF files, which makes it easier for developers to share their analysis results with others. The SARIF format is widely used in the software development industry and allows developers to collaborate more effectively on code improvement efforts.

Better Support for False Positives

CppDepend has also made it easier to exclude false positives from its analysis, giving developers more control over the results. This is particularly useful for projects where certain code patterns are deemed acceptable, but might be flagged as issues by the analysis tool.

False Positives

From the source code, add a comment to exclude the false positive detection:

With CppDepend, software quality can be measured using Code Metrics, visualized using Graphs and Treemaps, and enforced using standard and custom Rules.

CppDepend offers a wide range of features. It is often described as a Swiss Army Knife for C and C++ developers.
