I know that many programmers keep track of our articles and the development of our static code analyzer, PVS-Studio, but never actually tried it on their own projects. I know this from emails that go along the lines of “I’ve been reading your articles for a year, and it was after that recent article X that I finally made a decision to give your tool a try and check my project, and I have a question: ….” But why wait for so long?! :)
I decided to write this text to encourage those of our followers who are still hesitating to download and try the analyzer :). It’s easy as ABC!
