Klocwork NASA Power of Ten Taxonomy released

The Power of 10 Rules were created in 2006 by the NASA/JPL Laboratory for Reliable Software. The rules are intended to eliminate certain C coding practices which make code difficult to review or statically analyse. These rules are a complement to the MISRA C guidelines and have been incorporated into the greater set of JPL coding standards.

Developed by Emenda, the Klocwork NASA Power of 10 Taxonomy, allows for the checking and reporting of violations to the power of 10 rules for developing safety-critical code.
