Microsoft Source Code Analysis for C#

Also known as a CodeSniffer, this tool analyses your source code and outputs statistics of whether the code fails key standards which should be followed across your entire codebase.

    Source Analysis is similar in many ways to Microsoft Code Analysis (specifically FxCop), but there are some important distinctions. FxCop performs its analysis on compiled binaries, while Source Analysis analyzes the source code directly. For this reason, Code Analysis focuses more on the design of the code, while Source Analysis focuses on layout, readability and documentation. Most of that information is stripped away during the compilation process, and thus cannot be analyzed by FxCop.

Sweet. I’m going to try and push it into one of our local projects here :)

[UPDATE]
….bugger. Looks like it is reliant on VS2005/.NET 2.0

why am i still stuck on this lousy 1.1 project? :(
