digitalmars.D.announce - On the D Blog: Using the GCC Static Analyzer on the D Programming

If you saw Max Haughton's [DConf Online 2021 
presentation](https://youtu.be/6TDZa5LUBzY) (Q & A video coming 
soon), or followed his remarks here in the forums or the D 
Community Discord, you know that profiling and static analysis 
are among his major interests.

The DConf Online video was all about profiling. Now, he's 
submitted an article to the D Blog showing why the GCC static 
analyzer is useful for D and how to use it.

Wow, it looks like the analyzer is easy to use! If bloated in it's error messages.

Better bloated than bad IMO. You'll notice that the GCC __backend__ can literally do a nicer error message than the D frontend. We should really have these for DIP1000, but the analysis just kind of happens as the compiler sees the code so doing these top-down views is quite hard.
