A prototype tool that rewrites c/cpp/objc files to annotate security points of interest.
- replaceUsesOfAuto - rewrite uses of auto to their deduced types
- elaborateOnImplicitCasts - make implicit casts more explicit by injecting comments
- annotateLambaPointerCaptures - inject comments anytime a pointer is captured by lambda
This project builds clang and llvm and has the same prerequisites:
Mac OS X
$ brew install cmake
Ubuntu / Debian Linux
$ sudo apt-get build-dep clang-3.7
clang-tidy is built on top of clang's libtooling interface and requires your project to have a compilation database. The easiest way to get a compliation database is to let cmake generate one for you with:
$ cmake -DCMAKE_EXPORT_COMPILE_COMMANDS=ON path_to_cmakelists
This creates a compile_commands.json, which tells clang-tidy the specific compile commands used so it can properly parse the source file into an AST.
$ ./build/bin/clang-tidy -checks=readability-AuditAnnotate file_to_check.cpp
