\section1 Setting Up Clang Static Analyzer
You must have Clang installed to use the Clang Static Analyzer. On Windows,
Clang version 3.6, or later, is required to use the MSVC tool chain.
As a tested version of Clang is shipped together with Qt Creator, no manual
setup is required.
To set up the Clang Static Analyzer, select \uicontrol Tools >
\uicontrol Options > \uicontrol Analyzer >
To profit from improved checkers in newer Clang versions, \QC can be set up
to use those. However, only the shipped version of Clang is tested and known
to work. Other versions might not work at all.
To set up a particular Clang version for the Clang Static Analyzer, select
\uicontrol Tools > \uicontrol Options > \uicontrol Analyzer >
\uicontrol {Clang Static Analyzer} and check that the path to the Clang
executable is set correctly in the \uicontrol {Clang executable} field.
