Source code analyzer and refactoring browser for C program collections
CScout is a source code analyzer and refactoring browser for collections of C programs. It can process workspaces of multiple projects we define a project as a collection of C source files that are linked together mapping the complexity introduced by the C preprocessor back into the original C source code files. CScout takes advantage of modern hardware advances fast processors and large memory capacities to analyze C source code beyond the level of detail and accuracy provided by current compilers and linkers. The analysis CScout performs takes into account the identifier scopes introduced by the C preprocessor and the C language proper scopes and namespaces. CScout has already been applied on projects ranging from tens of thousands of lines, like the FreeBSD and Linux kernels, and the Apache web server.
