RE: [cdt-dev] Does CDT core implement semantic checks for C

Sure, the c++ parsers perform overload resolution where this is required (e.g. function-calls, overloadable operators). They also perform template instantiation.
However, there is nothing like that for the c-parsers.

Note that the parsers generate problem nodes in some situations, for example- when encountering a function call with some arguments and when those arguments don't match (and cannot be implicitly converted to) any known overload. I'd say that it's a kind of semantic check.
