MISRA-C. Subset of the C language for critical systems Most of MISRA-C is just good common sense for on C's operator precedence rules in expressions. MISRA C is a set of software development guidelines for the C programming language .. "MISRA C fact sheet" (PDF). aracer.mobi " MISRA. MISRA C++ Working Group formed This is not the case for C++, and they had to be covered by MISRA C rules (sometimes with changes).
I think this is where most companies go wrong, following MISRA-C and their buggy static analysers blindly - which is a dangerous thing to do. MISRA-C does the most good when you get a warning from the tool, then stop and think "what is this rule trying to tell me?
Meaning you would ideally have to read and understand the rationale for the rule in order to follow it or ignore it. My main problem with all of these programming rules is that they encourage complacency and discourage thinking. The best we can say is that we aspire to being engineers and and maybe the limited world of embedded programming is closer than most other areas.
It is a "safe subset" of the C language, banning various forms of dangerous practice through rules aiming for well-known bugs such as reliance on poorly-defined behavior or implicit type conversions.
C has the advantage of being a very old language, meaning that all the language flaws are well-known. This is something to keep in mind, as to my knowledge there exists no open source static code analyser tools that can check for MISRA-C compliance. Still, most of them are useful.
MISRA-C is only focused on C programming, it does not address CPU or microcontroller issues etc, although it does enforce some forms of defensive programming, which is a counter against EMI, run-away code and other forms of unexpected program behavior. Not all of these will necessarily apply to your specific machine though. Most rules in the document make a lot of sense, but some do not.
