FindCppcheck fails with cppcheck 1.5.3 #10

I'm using your cmake-modules to apply cppcheck to our sources (thanks!), however I found a small issue when using cppcheck version 1.5.3.

In cppcheck version 1.5.3, the unused functions test is enabled with: --enable=unusedFunction, however in your Findcppcheck.cmake module you have this as:
(note the additional 's').

I'm not sure what the earlier behaviour was but the current version does not work.
Since this is a trivial fix I haven't created a pull request, but I'll try putting a diff in an additional comment.

I experienced the same problem running cppcheck version 1.49. The above patch fixed it for me. Thanks!

Thanks. I should have checked here before starting to debug myself. I too can confirm that the patch fixes 1.5.7.

Year later, still not fixed. Above patch fixes 1.59 too.

Would have been easier to not lose had it been a pull request, sorry. Looks like it got fixed.
