You might be interested to know that apparently, Coverity is currently

'Coverity Prevent for C/C++'. They have received good critique's in
the past by covering the code of open source products.
We're already part of their Scan program:


in Rung 1, although the last run appears to have been back in October 2007. I'll poke David Maxwell about that.
I just thought that you might be interested in giving it a try for

the following URL :

I'm not sure whether they're offering a free trial in the sense of being 
able to download a version of their software, or just in the sense that 
they'll run the software for you once (i.e., I'm not sure what they man 
by "you will receive a complimentary report detailing actionable 
analysis results").
