New in version 3.10.

This property is supported only when <LANG> is C or CXX.

Specify a semicolon-separated list containing a command line for the cppcheck static analysis tool. The Makefile Generators and the Ninja generator will run cppcheck along with the compiler and report any problems. If the command-line specifies the exit code options to cppcheck then the build will fail if the tool returns non-zero.

This property is initialized by the value of the CMAKE_<LANG>_CPPCHECK variable if it is set when a target is created.

New in version 3.27: This property supports generator expressions.

New in version 3.27: SKIP_LINTING can be set on individual source files to exclude them from the linting tools defined by <LANG>_CPPLINT, <LANG>_CLANG_TIDY, <LANG>_CPPCHECK, and <LANG>_INCLUDE_WHAT_YOU_USE. When SKIP_LINTING is set to true on a source file, those tools will not be run on that specific file.
