Any on-line MISRA reference material with examples?

Post by sw_test » Mon Sep 09, 2019 4:35 pm


I was wondering if there is any on-line reference material with examples of different MISRA compliance rules and how to fix the issues properly? or is it all only available through the MISRA webstore? ... fault.aspx

I'm looking for a way to link to examples for the different MISRA rules but not really seeing something that is similar to seeing issues with CWE, like:

Is there anything similar for the MISRA compliance side of things?

This response is written by the MISRA C:2012 working group and may not be applicable to the work of other groups.

The MISRA C:2012 guidelines contain a set of rules and directives along with advice on how to comply with those guidelines.
The examples from the document can be found at MISRA C:2012 Examples or as a .zip download

Two other documents have also been produced:

"MISRA Compliance:2016 Achieving compliance with MISRA Coding Guidelines" applies to both MISRA C and MISRA C++ guidelines. It goes into more detail on how a project should apply the MISRA coding guidelines. It also introduces the idea of permits for those cases where a required rule needs to be deviated.

An example of permits for MISRA C:2004 can be found "MISRA C:2004 Permits - Deviation permits for MISRA Compliance"

The documents and examples can also be found in the "Resources" section of the Bulletin Board.
