Cppcheck GUI ============ This is a GUI for cppcheck. It allows selecting folder or set of files to check with cppcheck and shows list of found errors. Running ------- You need Qt5 libraries installed in your system. Packages/files to install depends on your operating system: - Windows: download Qt from http://www.qt.io/download/ - Linux: install Qt using your package manager, look for packages having Qt in their name, e.g. for Ubuntu install libqt5core5a, libqt5gui5, libqt5widgets5 and libqt5printsupport5. Compiling --------- Windows: - The easy ways are: -- download Qt SDK from http://www.qt.io/download/ and use QtCreator to build the GUI. -- Download precompiled libraries for your platform and use your preferred IDE/environment to build GUI. Be careful to download the correct version of library for your compiler! - The harder way is to download Qt sources and build Qt. Compiling Qt alone may take over 4 hours! Linux: - Install Qt development packages (make sure qmake -tool gets installed!). The names depend on distribution, but e.g. for Ubuntu the needed packages are: * qt5-default After you have needed libraries and tools installed, open command prompt/console, go to gui directory and run command: - qmake (in Linux and in Windows if build with MinGW/gcc or nmake) - qmake -tp vc (to generate Visual Studio project file) - qmake -tp vc LINKCORE=yes (to generate Visual Studio project file, linking dynamically to core. Recommended.) On Windows, you have to either call qtvars.bat in Qt folder or use the Qt command line prompt shortcut added in the start menu by Qt installation. These commands generate makefiles to actually build the software. After that the actual building is done in IDE or command line as usual. Note that you don't need to run qmake again unless you add/remove files from the project. The Visual Studio solution does not contain a configuration for x64 platform, but it can be added easily. Tests ----- There are tests for the GUI in gui/test -directory. There is test.pro -projectfile for building all the tests. Each test is in own subdirectory and builds own binary. Test is run by simple running that binary. The binary also has several options to select tests etc. You can get the help by running "binaryname -help" -command. Translations ------------ The GUI is translated to several languages. Qt comes with two tools to update and compile the translations. lupdate updates translations files from the code and lrelease compiles translation files use with the executable. To update translations: - run lupdate gui.pro to update the translation files to match the code. This command updates all the .ts files. Which can be then edited to translate the application. To compile translations: - run lrelease gui.pro to compile .ts files to .qm files which are used by the executable.
