Looking for a regular expression to identify hard coded magic numbers in source code

A frequent issue in code reviews is whether a numeric value should be hard-coded in the code or not. Does anyone know of a nice regular expression that can catch 'magic numbers' in code like:

int overDue = 30;
Money fee = new Money(5.25D);

without also getting a ton of false positives like for loop initialization code?

for (int i = 0; i < array.length; i++) {



A better question would be about asking what tools do that. And the answer would be:

  • Checkstyle
  • FxCop

And many more static code analysis tools.
