Coding Standards & Code Metrics

MISRA, AUTOSAR, CERT, and JSF coding rule sets, custom coding rules, code metrics

To specify which coding standards you want to check, for instance, MISRA C™:2012 or AUTOSAR C++14, use the coding standard options. To see code complexity metrics in your analysis results, for instance, cyclomatic complexity and number of calling or called functions, use the code metrics option.
