            Bug ID: 15585
           Summary: Divide by zero check confused by loop
           Product: clang
           Version: 3.2
          Hardware: Macintosh
                OS: MacOS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: Static Analyzer
          Assignee: kremenek at apple.com
          Reporter: aneumann at mpi-inf.mpg.de
                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu
    Classification: Unclassified


I've been trying out the static analyzer. Apparently the divide by zero check
is easily confused. Consider the following piece of code:

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

void f1() {
    for(int x=10; x>0; x--);
    int j = 0;
    int i = 5/j;
    cout << i << endl;

void f2() {
    int j = 0;
    int i = 5/j;
    cout << i << endl;

int main() {
    return 0;

The analyzer does not see the divide by zero in f1(), only in f2(). Since I see
no reason why a loop in the function should prevent the detection of this
divide by zero, I submit this bug report.

I also copypaste the verbose output
