  • Detect errors. Find functionality problems, such as unimplemented events, odd tab orders and missing error handling.
  • Enforce coding style. Apply design and naming standards. Make that spaghetti code readable again.
  • Avoid resource leaks. Ensure proper disposing of objects and API handles.
  • Find duplicate blocks. Spot duplicated code blocks, the results of copy & paste coding. Ent
  • Ensure .NET compatibility. Review VB6 code for known VB.NET compatibility issues. Ent
  • All code review rules

Surf code as hypertext. Click objects to see their use and declarations. Locate code via the enhanced Find window. Copy syntax-formatted code to documents.

Cross-reference. Find locations of use for any programming object. View class instantiations, variable reads and writes, procedure calls etc. Analyze file dependencies and call sequences to understand the impact of changes. Cross-referencing is a technique that finds where each class, procedure or variable is being used and how.

Print your source code in multiple columns with syntax highlighting. Export code as syntax highlighted PDF, HTML or RTF. Print-out pdf samples: 1, 2

Create code manuals and source code web sites. Pro, Ent Sample project web site

Analyze binary libraries. See how your code calls binary .dll, .ocx and .exe libraries. Review the contents of DLL, COM and .NET assembly files referenced by your programs. Ent

Metrics. Monitor code quality with 184 metrics, such as lines of code, cyclomatic complexity, relative complexity, depth of nesting, comment density, length of names and object-oriented metrics. Compare projects and view project history. Ent
