Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 170906
Review Request: pscan
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:15 EST
PScan is a program which attempts to scan C source files for common
function abuses, which often lead to buffer overflows.
* sources match upstream
* rpmlint is happy
* spec looks good
* clean installation and removal
* builds in mock
Oh, the summary is indeed correct: "Limited problem scanner" I have tried it on
some files on my system and it has not found even one problem :-)
Yep, the functionality is indeed quite limited, but sometimes useful anyway.
For an example, run it eg. on the unpatched vanilla upstream sources of the
latest up-imapproxy package in extras.
Thanks for the review, imported; will build when the buildsys is in better
Successfully built for FC-4 and devel.
