[cfe-dev] Extending printf format string checking to cover ObjC format strings in NSLog

Current printf format string checking is very useful but it's limited  
to printf -style functions which use C format strings. I would like to  
propose extending this functionality to cover Objective-C format  
strings in NSLog function. A simple implementation of this extension  
is attached to this message.

Speaking of format strings in ObjC, are there any plans to extend  
format string checking to cover ObjC methods which accept format  
strings as one of their arguments, such as various -[NSString  
initWithFormat:...] methods?

Best regards,
Nikita Zhuk
