[Freeswitch-dev] Static code annalysis with Klocwork

It helped quite a bit, many of the identified problems were fixed in  
tree and a review of the svn logs will find all the issues identified  
in the commit notes.  I would guess there were hundreds of issues  
found.  We never got them to run another test run on more recent code  
(we requested about 6 months ago and they never did it).  We do use  
other static code analysis tools as well including those built in to  
MSVC Team Edition on a fairly regular ongoing basis but those require  
a lot more up front work marking function parameters in the code.   
While there is some cost in doing that, I have found that you get  
better results both in many more real errors found and many less false  
issues found.  We are more than interested in continuing this work if  
klockwork ever responds back, or more likely enhancing our code  
coverage with the msvc code analysis tagging and we are looking for  
those with access to that software who have time and would like to
