ITK5.0 uses c++11 nullptr instead of NULL and 0. I was getting errors explained here: https://marcofoco.com/use-nullptr-if-you-can-0-if-you-need-but-please-dont-use-null/
error: call to 'a' is ambiguous
STEPs to use clang-tidy:
Generate compile_commands.json with CMake option:
This generates a
compile_commands.json in your build directory at configure time.
install clang and clang tools, that includes clang-tidy and run-clang-tidy.py. (In Archlinux: sudo pacman -S clang, in other systems might be clang-extra-tools or similar) Docs: http://clang.llvm.org/extra/clang-tidy/
And in the build folder of slicer, execute:
run-clang-tidy.py -header-filter='.*' -checks='-*,modernize-use-nullptr' -fix
This will iteratively check files for updates. It takes a while. The sources are only modified at the end of the process, so you could cancel anytime before with no consequences.
