[cfe-dev] MPI-Checker - Static Analyzer

Hi Alex,

Thanks for posting this! If you're willing to go through the code review process (which might include breaking it into pieces), and Ted, et al., agree, I'd love to see this functionality upstream. Not only may it be great example code (I'll let Ted and Anna make that determination), but MPI is *the* critical interface for almost all large-scale parallel scientific programming, and the potential audience for this checker is sizable. I'm certainly willing to help with the code review as well.

I'll mention for those unfamiliar, that MPI is an active committee-developed specification (http://mpi-forum.org/docs/docs.html) for high-performance message passing with numerous implementations (both open source and from many vendors). The first version of the specification was published in 1994, and the latest version published in 2012.
