Code review overview

Code Review for C

Automated source code review is a method of analyzing code against a set of predefined rules to ensure that the source adheres to guidelines and standards that are part of any efficient quality control strategy. HCL OneTest Embedded provides an automated code review tool, which reports on adherence to guidelines for your C source code.

Among other guidelines, the code review tool implements rules from the MISRA-C:2004 standard, which are Guidelines for the use of the C language in critical systems.

Code Review supports C89 and C99.

When an application or test node is built, the source code is analyzed by the code review tool. The tool checks the source file against the predefined rules and produces a .crc report file that can be viewed and controlled from the HCL OneTest Embedded graphical user interface (GUI).

Code review can be performed each time a node is built, but can also be calculated without executing the application.

The default code review report is generated in an HTML format. You can customize the report template that is available in HCL OneTest Embedded.
