Using the EGL Coding Rules Feature

By Jiyong Huang posted Wed April 01, 2020 09:21 PM


The EGL Coding Rules feature, available with the release of version 9.5, allows a user to scan EGL code and receive a report. This report identifies whether the coding style or functionality of the EGL code violates any of the selected coding rules. Coding rules may be selected from a distributed collection of pre-written rules, or from rules that an end-user can write and integrate into the rule set. In addition, the feature provides pre-defined rule sets, such as best practices for a specific generation environment. These best practice rule sets allow code to be checked for typical performance concerns in a specific environment.

The version 9.5 documentation provides more information on the details of this new feature.

The following videos are provided to give a user a step-by-step instructions for each of these areas of interest:
