The C/C++ plugin adds a state-of-the-art C/C++ lexer, preprocessor and parser to SonarSource products. It allows users to perform objective and automated C and C++ code reviews against pre-defined coding best practices. As the plugin includes embedded lexer and preprocessor, the C/C++ source code does not need to be preprocessed before being analyzed.

This plugin benefits from the power of Open Source by reusing all available core services from the SonarQube platform, including issues drilldowns, hotspots, code viewer with syntax highlighting, Time Machine, Clouds, and coding rule profile management.
