Problem scanner which attempts to scan C source files for common function
abuses, which often lead to security problems. This program will scan
source files for functions that use variadic functions and warn of
potential abuses. It is a useful tool for those performing source code
audits. C source files are scanned for problematic uses of printf
style functions, such as sprintf(buffer, variable).
