What is code analyzer?
A code analyzer is a type of software test application that examines, analyzes, and reports on the source code structure of a program or software.
It is used by software testers and quality assurance professionals to evaluate a program under a number of different software coding / programming rules.
A code analyzer is also known as a source code analyzer.
A code analyzer mainly automates the software code analysis process within a software test lifecycle. It scans and analyzes static code. Typically, a code analyzer is developed to check source code for known errors, the programming context, and general program structure. It enables an understanding of code behavior, program logic, and the relationships between components of the program.
Analysis is used by software testers, quality assurance professionals, and developers to remove bugs and improve the overall structure of the code. It is also used to identify security flaws in a program.
