PVS-Studio for Linux

Finally! Today we released the first version of PVS-Studio analyzer for Linux. Now Linux developers are getting a new powerful tool to fight bugs in the code. We ask you to spread this news in the world. Tell your colleagues, post it on Twitter and Facebook! Let the programs be more stable and safe!

Starting with the 6.10 version, PVS-Studio analyzer supports not only Windows, but the Linux too.

PVS-Studio performs static code analysis and generates a report that helps a programmer find and fix bugs. PVS-Studio performs a wide range of code checks, it is also useful to search for misprints and Copy-Paste errors. Demonstrative examples of such errors: V501, V517, V522, V523, V571, V611.

Windows-based version of the analyzer is still available here. The analyzer integrates with Visual Studio 2010–2015 or can be used separately in the Standalone mode.

The new Linux version (.deb, .rpm, .tgz) is available for download on the page:

We also recommend reading the documentation section “How to run PVS-Studio on Linux”. If something is not clear or something does not work, we will gladly help you, feel free to ask questions in the mail.

If you want to get a registration key to try out the tool — contact us. Over the time the process of getting the trial version may change, but now it is important for us to understand who downloads the analyzer, how the person uses it and which issues appear during the usage.

P.S. Right after the release of the Linux-version we may be a little overwhelmed by the amount of feedback and questions. That’s why we ask for your understanding, if we answer them with a little delay.
