C/C++ compilers supported for build integration

As part of creating a build specification, Klocwork automatically searches for the following compiler types by default. If your compiler is not on this list, contact Customer Support by sending an email to support-klocwork@perforce.com so that we can support your compiler. For details on compilers and on creating build specifications generally, see Creating a C/C++ build specification.

*Klocwork does not process the compiler option for icc8051 to open standard input as source instead of reading source from a file. If your build uses this option, you can save the source code to a file and run icc8051 with the source file as input, or you can choose to ignore these compilations. The code that is piped through standard input will not be analyzed in the Klocwork build (this is what kwinject does by default).
