    Source code audits.

    I need help to find a tool that audits C++ code automatically, but it has to be free or less that 500USD per license. I'm looking for something like the audit feature of Borland's Together, the problem is that the product is WAY too expensive and have many features that I don't need. I need to be able to select what rules I want to apply and which ones I don't. I have found a few free tools(for example Flawfinder) but they focus on security issues only. I want to focus and all kind of problems, from wrong memory management, to wrong coding style.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try www.gimpel.com flexelint/pc-lint
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Yeah right. They want like $5000 dollars for that crap...and it's pretty much like a couple of little modules that you can add in with your source files.

    Are you clueless, or just plain stupid?
    Sure it's $5000 - for the uber 10 user floating LAN licence, but prices start at just over $200 - well within the OP's spec.

    Do the math - most companies cost engineering time at at least $50 per hour. You don't have to spend many hours for bugs before the payback becomes bleedingly obvious even to you.

    Maybe you'd be more clueful if you actually tried to answer some of the bugs per month tests without looking at the answers.
