[cfe-dev] Clang Static Analyzer - BugReporter::EmitBasicReport with Stmt

Hi, Gábor. The LocationContext/AnalysisDeclContext is used to find an appropriate location for the statement, which may be in an enclosing expression. You need a Decl for this because we don't want to build a parent map for the entire ASTContext.

May I suggest running your matcher in checkASTCodeBody instead of checkEndOfTranslationUnit?

I tried looking through the documentation, but apparently anything that returns a LocationDeclContext or AnalysisDeclContext either require a CheckerContext (which I don't have, because I'm in checkEndOfTranslationUnit: all I have is the TranslationUnitDecl, the AnalysisManager and the BugReporter), or a Decl*.
