"cppcheck --doc" still does not appear in your help file, while "cppcheck --errorlist" does. I always have to go to the web to remember the argument for the error checklist.

I found a really big problem, but sadly forgot my trac password, here the short version: False positive: Cppcheck seems to reduce typefeds with the VCL language extension for events typedef void(__closure* TMyIpcEvent)(const TIpcBufferRef&); to ... [More] nothing. So if there is a constructor like this class MyClass { public: MyClass(TMyIpcEvent, int); }; It is detecting the noExplicitConstructor style warning, which is obviously wrong, because there are 2 arguments. Thanks so much for having a look at it :) [Less]
