Rule Checker

Fast automatic checks for adherence to coding standards

RuleChecker is a static program analyzer that automatically checks your C or C++ code for compliance with MISRA rules, CERT recom­mendations, and other coding guidelines.












RuleChecker primarily targets safety-critical embedded applications, but can also be used to analyze any structured C programs, handwritten or generated, with complex memory usages, dynamic memory allocation, and recursion.


Supported standards

  • MISRA 2004
  • MISRA 2012
  • MISRA 2012 Amendment 1
  • MISRA C++:2008
  • SEI CERT Secure C
  • MITRE CWE (Common Weakness Enumeration)
  • ISO/IEC TS 17961:2013 (C Secure Coding Rules)
  • ISO/IEC 9899:1999 diagnostics
  • Adaptive AUTOSAR C++14
  • HIS metrics
  • Customizable style rules for all C identifiers
  • Your very own in-house coding guidelines (on request)


  • Easy configuration, allowing you to toggle individual rules and even specific aspects of certain rules.
  • Exceptionally fast analyses for complex real-world programs with hundreds of thousands lines of code.
  • Various statistics and code metrics, such as com­ment den­sity or cyclomatic complexity.
  • Optional checks for metric thresholds.
  • Interactive graphs, charts, and tables for efficient exploration of the analysis results.
  • Customizable reports for documentation and certification purposes.
  • Optional integration with the runtime error analyzer Astrée to guarantee zero false negatives and minimize false positives on semantical rules.
  • Batch mode for use in continuous integration frameworks.
  • Plugins for dSPACE TargetLink, Jenkins, and Eclipse. 

Who uses RuleChecker?

  • The global automotive supplier Helbako in Germany is using RuleChecker to de­monstrate MISRA compliance of their elec­tronic control software.
  • MTU Friedrichshafen is using RuleChecker to demonstrate the cor­rectness of con­trol software for emer­gency power gene­rators in power plants.
  • replaced their legacy tools with Astrée and RuleChecker, resulting in significant savings thanks to faster analyses, higher accuracy, and optimized licensing and support costs.
