Eiffel Inspector - Getting Started

Eiffel Inspector Tool

After opening an existing project with EiffelStudio, go to View->Tools->Eiffel Inspector to show the tool. It will look like this:

A Simple Analysis

Press the Analyze System button. If needed, the system will be compiled now. A successful compilation is required for the Eiffel Inspector to run. After a successful compilation the analysis will start and will check all classes of your system. The status bar shows the progress by displaying the class currently being analyzed. As soon as the analysis is complete, results will show up in the panel as a list of rule violations.

A double-click on a row will update the EiffelStudio editor to go to the position in the code where the issue lies. You may expand the row to see more details.
