ATBG: Reflection and default parameters

We have two posts today on the Coverity Development Testing Blog‘s continuing series Ask The Bug Guys. First, my colleague Jon explores a tricky difference between the 1989 and 1999 C standards involving conversions of array types to pointer types that can cause undefined behavior if you’re not careful. Then I discuss why Reflection and constructors (or any other method, for that matter) with default parameters do not play nicely with reflection.

Thanks to readers Dennis and Laurence for these interesting questions. If you have a question about a bug in your C, C++, C# or Java program, please send it to TheBugGuys@coverity.com; we’d love to see it. We can’t guarantee an answer to all your problems, but we will pick a selection of the best questions and post about them on the development testing blog. Past episodes can be found here, and the RSS feed for the blog is here.
