About

    The original name of this program is "C++check" but it was later changed to "cppcheck".

Manual

    A manual is available online: 
    http://cppcheck.sf.net/manual.pdf

Compiling

    Any C++ compiler should work.

    To build the GUI, you need Qt. The command line tool doesn't have any dependencies.

    There are multiple compilation choices:
      * qmake - cross platform build tool - but only the GUI can be built
      * Visual Studio - Windows
      * gnu make
      * g++

    qmake
    =====
        You can use the gui/gui.pro file to build the gui.
            cd gui
            qmake
            make

    Visual Studio
    =============
        Use the cppcheck.sln file.

    gnu make
    ========
        make

    g++ (for experts)
    =================
        If you just want to build Cppcheck then you can use this command:
            g++ -o cppcheck -Ilib cli/*.cpp lib/*.cpp

    mingw
    =====
        make LDFLAGS=-lshlwapi

Cross compiling Win32 (CLI) version of Cppcheck in Linux

    sudo apt-get install mingw32
    make CXX=i586-mingw32msvc-g++ LDFLAGS="-lshlwapi"
    mv cppcheck cppcheck.exe
