C26462 USE_CONST_POINTER_FOR_VARIABLE

The value pointed to by '%variable%' is assigned only once, mark it as a pointer to const (con.4).

Pointers to variables whose values remain unchanged should be marked as const.

Example

void useVal(int val);

void function1(int* ptr)
{
    int* p = ptr; // C26462, the value pointed to by p is unmodified
    ptr = nullptr;

    useVal(*p);
}
