We just tried a sample run of Coverity on our code base, and I'm moderately impressed. My first reaction is "and GCC isn't finding these? do we have our warnings turned up high enough?".

But overall my feeling is a lot like when I finally got over my ego and embraced lint[Wiki], working with this tool for a few months would do good things for my C++ style, applying this tool to an existing code base is a very good thing, and I'm guessing that subjecting a programming team to a few months of it will make us all better programmers.

It ain't cheap, especially for a startup on a budget, but if you're managing a C++ code base it's worth looking at.
