CodePeer 2.3 is the latest version of AdaCore’s static analysis tool for the automated review and validation of Ada source code. CodePeer assesses potential bugs before program execution to find errors efficiently and early in the development life cycle. It also performs impact and vulnerability analysis when existing code is modified, and, using control-flow, data-flow and other advanced static analysis techniques, the tool detects problems that would otherwise only be found through labor-intensive debugging.
