Recently I've read this blog about Google integrating Clang parser into their code analysis tools

This is something in which C++ is at least a decade behind other languages like Java, but now that llvm-clang is almost C++ iso-ready, I think its possible for C++ code analysis tools to begin using the C++ parser effectively, since it has been designed from the ground up precisely for this

I'm wondering if there are existing open source or known commercial projects taking this path, integrating with Clang to provide higher-level analysis tools?

Have you looked at the Clang static analyzer?

...source code analysis tool that finds bugs in C, C++, and Objective-C programs.

Currently it can be run either as a standalone tool or within Xcode. The standalone tool is invoked from the command line, and is intended to be run in tandem with a build of a codebase.

The analyzer is 100% open source and is part of the Clang project...

still not doing c++, only C and objective-C, but thanks for the reference! – lurscher Jun 24 '11 at 22:44
@lurscher: oops -- quite right. – Jerry Coffin Jun 24 '11 at 23:50
Since clang-3.0 it now does C++. – Benjamin Bannier Dec 10 '11 at 15:04
