Currently I’m in the final stages of completing development on a new Polaris tool. One of things that still needs to be done is checking for any violations of FxCop rules. While most rules are pretty clear to me, others still require a read-up in the documentation.
I’m still stuck with FxCop 1.32 and so I can’t really use the links that are presented with the violations in the tool. This is simply because gotdotnet was taken down last month. One of the first thoughts that popped up was “Dude, what’s up with the documentation?”, luckely Microsoft moved the documentation and posted a blogpost where to find it.
For those still using FxCop 1.32 or 1.35 and can’t move over to 1.36 beta 2 here are the links to the documentation:
- Rules documentation: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb429379(VS.80).aspx
- FxCop documentation: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb429476(vs.80).aspx
