[clang-tidy] bugprone-bool-pointer-implicit-conversion doesn't handle members

Authored by tetsuo-cpp on Jul 5 2020, 11:06 PM.



This patch is adding support for members to the bugprone-bool-pointer-implicit-conversion check. Apologies if I've done this in a weird/wrong way, I'm still getting my head around the matching DSL.

Remove the unnecessary template.

Thanks for working on this.

There seems to be many places in this check where names are confusing, Var referring to a MemberExpr, DeclRef refering to a MemberExpr. I'd prefer if the names that you have added were renamed to something more in line with what they represent.


This should be an else if or the previous if should return. Saves redundant checking for MemberExpr when DeclRefExpr already matched.


nit: You don't need to recycle all the test cases, the logic for that is already checked above, just a few showing member expr being detected properly will suffice.

Don't have huge preference on this so feel free to ignore.

Friendly ping!

Friendly ping. Could I please get this looked at?

LGTM, though I have a possible code simplification if you think it's an improvement.


Can you get away with:

if (const auto *E = Result.Nodes.getNodeAs<Expr>("expr")) {
  const Decl *D = isa<DeclRefExpr> ? cast<DeclRefExpr>(E)->getDecl() : cast<MemberExpr>(E)->getMemberDecl();
  const auto M = ignoringParenImpCasts(anyOf(declRefExpr(to(equalsNode(D))), memberExpr(hasDeclaration(equalsNode(D)))));
  checkImpl(Result, E, If, M, *this);

(Totally untested, but it hopefully demonstrates the point.)

Cleanup check conditional.
