.Ar build_command
.Op build_options
is a Perl script that invokes the Clang static analyzer. Options used by
or by the analyzer appear first, followed by the
.Ar build_command
and any
.Ar build_options
normally used to build the target system.
The static analyzer employs a long list of checking algorithms, see
Output can be written in standard
.Li .plist
and/or HTML format.
The following options are supported:
.Bl -tag -width indent
.It Fl analyze-headers
Also analyze functions in #included files.
.It Fl enable-checker Ar checker_name , Fl disable-checker Ar checker_name
.Ar checker_name .
.It Fl h , Fl Fl help
Display this message.
.It Fl Fl help-checkers
List default checkers, see
.It Fl Fl html-title Ns Op = Ns Ar title
Specify the title used on generated HTML pages.
A default title is generated if
.Ar title
is not specified.
.It Fl k , Fl Fl keep-going
Add a
.Dq keep on going
option to
.Ar build_command .
Currently supports make and xcodebuild. This is a convenience option;
one can specify this behavior directly using build options.
.It Fl o
Target directory for HTML report files. Subdirectories will be
created as needed to represent separate invocations
of the analyzer. If this option is not specified, a directory is
created in /tmp (TMPDIR on Mac OS X) to store the reports.
.It Fl plist
Output the results as a set of
.Li .plist
files. (By default the output of
is a set of HTML files.)
.It Fl plist-html
Output the results as a set of HTML and .plist files
.It Fl Fl status-bugs
Set exit status to 1 if it found potential bugs and 0 otherwise. By
default the exit status of
is that returned by
.Ar build_command .
.It Fl Fl use-c++ Ns Op = Ns Ar compiler_path
Guess the default compiler for your C++ and Objective-C++ code. Use this
option to specify an alternate compiler.
.It Fl Fl use-cc Ns Op = Ns Ar compiler_path
Guess the default compiler for your C and Objective-C code. Use this
option to specify an alternate compiler.
.It Fl v
Verbose output from
and the analyzer. A second and
.Ar v
increases verbosity.
.It Fl V , Fl Fl view
View analysis results in a web browser when the build completes.
.It Fl constraints Op Ar model
Specify the contraint engine used by the analyzer. By default the
.Ql range
model is used. Specifying
.Ql basic
uses a simpler, less powerful constraint model used by checker-0.160
and earlier.
.It Fl maxloop Ar N
Specify the number of times a block can be visited before giving
up. Default is 4. Increase for more comprehensive coverage at a
cost of speed.
.It Fl no-failure-reports
Do not create a
.Ql failures
subdirectory that includes analyzer crash reports and preprocessed
source files.
.It Fl stats
Generates visitation statistics for the project being analyzed.
.It Fl store Op Ar model
Specify the store model used by the analyzer. By default, the
.Ql region
store model is used.
.Ql region
specifies a field-
sensitive store model. Users can also specify
.Ql basic
which is far less precise but can more quickly analyze code.
.Ql basic
was the default store model for checker-0.221 and earlier.

.Ar build_command

The checkers listed below may be enabled/disabled using the
.Fl enable-checker
.Fl disable-checker
A default group of checkers is run unless explicitly disabled.
Exactly which checkers constitute the default group is a function
of the operating system in use; they are listed with
.Fl Fl help-checkers .
