PVS-Studio 5.0 Brings Static Code Analysis to New Platforms
02/06/2013

Program Verification Systems (Co.Ltd) has announced the release of the new major version of PVS-Studio 5.0.

Online PR News – 06-February-2013 – Krasnoyarsk, Russia – The utility performs static analysis of a source code to reveal coding errors, programmer´s mistakes, fragments of code that can potentially produce a bug or disrupt the logic of the program. The new version is announced to support C++Builder, Windows Phone 8 and Windows Store projects.

Tracking and eliminating "bugs" are inevitable parts of software development. Multiple ways to perform this task are known: code review, debugging, dynamic code analysis, unit tests and others. PVS-Studio implements one of the most efficient ways to track both simple and in-depth code errors - static code analysis.

PVS-Studio scrupulously reads the entire source texts of a program, without actual execution of them, and detects errors and weak points in the code. The static code analysis approach allows a developer to test even those parts of the source texts that are rarely executed and thus are hard to debug with other methods. PVS-Studio also doesn´t rely on a compiler and easily detects hidden or potential errors in the code caused by copy-pasting or typos providing detailed diagnosis messages on every issue.

The application easily performs static analysis of 32-bit and 64-bit code and diagnoses parallel processing errors, while the ability to exclude unmodified parts of the source from analysis greatly speeds up the debugging. PVS-Studio flawlessly integrates to Microsoft Visual Studio 2005-2012 and MinGW, and the new version 5.0 also provides support for Embarcadero C++Builder, Windows Phone 8 and Windows Store projects.

PVS-Studio is available for Windows platform. The program supports the following IDEs: Microsoft Visual Studio 2012, 2010, 2008, 2005 (except Express editions), and Embarcadero C++Builder XE2, XE3, XE3 Update1.

The price list for PVS-Studio starts from €5,250 for a one-year license for 1-5 developers company to €28,000 for companies of 51-70 developers. The renewal of the license after the first year costs 80% of the regular price.
