Source code analyser

scan-build is a static analyzer and part of the clang family of tools. It can detect:

  • Resource leaks
  • Potential NULL dereferences
  • Logically dead code
  • and much more

It will create an HTML report for all the issues that it finds. It’s very simple to run:

# Configure NeoMutt as normal
./configure [OPTIONS]
# Run make under scan-build
scan-build make
