Praise for Understand

5 out of 5 stars!
"I use Understand™ for static code analysis on a regular basis as I'm involved in a very large, complex software project. Understand™ accelerates my understanding of large source code repositories. Wading through thousands of lines of software code is a difficult and arduous task that was much more difficult before finding Understand."

Chris Rhodes
Principle Development Engineer, Dell
"I work as an Air Force defense contractor. I was assigned to the task of porting an OpenGL 3D application from VAX DecWindows to Linux X Windows. The Government maintainer would add code as needed, but never delete anything. There was no SCM for version history. Using the various features of Understand™, I was able to create a functioning prototype in 3 months and eliminated 90% of useless and unneeded software code."

Jim Knox
Software Engineer, Northrop Grumman
"Understand™ allows me, as a software consultant, to very quickly analyze a client's full source code base. From there, I can readily follow complex call chains, dependency graphs, etc., in order to make informed recommendations in short order.

What would have preciously taken me several days (or weeks) can now be accomplished in a matter of hours ... It's the 'Swiss Army Knife' of static analysis tools"
