CodeHealer is an efficient and powerful source code analysis and verification tool that will help find and fix a significant number of programming bugs, mistakes and inconsistencies in Delphi programs before they are released. The information provided by CodeHealer will also help developers understand and improve existing code that they have not written. This is especially helpful for corporate developers who take over management of legacy applications.
CodeHealer is easy to learn and use, and has been designed to provide immediate benefits with a minimum of user effort and input. Its highly interactive user interface not only shows where the problems lie, but also makes suggestions as to how fix the problem and in many cases will even make the changes for you if you so choose.
CodeHealer is fast, so it can be run as an integral part of the development process, locating problems before they have had time to settle in and become "features", and while the code is still fresh in the developer's mind.
Software quality and reliability, whilst always having been important, have been driven to the top of the requirements list in recent times by the high profile software failures and breaches that we read about in the national press on a weekly basis. Security vulnerabilities in particular have become of paramount concern with the rapid increase in the number of software hackers over the last few years.
The benefits of static code analysis in finding residual programming errors, above and beyond the checks made by the compiler, are well known.
Static analysis tools such as LINT and its derivatives have been available for many years, and their findings well documented. CodeHealer takes those tools a significant step forward, both in power and usability.
CodeHealer can be used by developers at all levels of expertise, from the youngest and freshest newcomer to the old curmudgeon with 50 years of programming experience. Its benefits can be gained on both new and existing programs and projects by helping developers understand the code and offering suggestions for improving it.
CodeHealer currently supports programs written in Embarcadero Delphi (versions 5 through to XE7), and support for other languages such as C#, C, C++ and Java will be available at a later date.
