: Coding standard, Code compliance, Compli ance checker


Most organizations develop coding standards to im prove the quality of the software. The programmer has to write the code such that these standards are not violated. Manual checking of these standards can be difficult and time consuming. Hence, tools are used for code compliance to the standards. The set of restrictions vary from organization to organization, and these change with time within an organization. Therefore, development of code compliance checker must be automated and it should be generated from a set of rules. In this paper we propose a language for specifying code compliances, and a tool to generate code com pliance checkers from these specifications. We present the design of a tool for implementing this approach and our experience with C++.
