NAME - instrument and compile C files with E-ACSL

SYNOPSIS [ options ] files

DESCRIPTION is a convenience wrapper for instrumentation of C programs using the E-ACSL Frama-C plugin and their subsequent compilation using the GNU compiler collection ( GCC).


-h, --help
show a help page.
-c, --compile
compile the generated and the original (supplied) sources. By default no compilation is performed.
-D, --rt-debug
Enable runtime debug features, i.e., compile unoptimized executable with assertions and extra checks.
-X, --instrumented-only
Do not compile original code. Has effect only in the presence of the -c flag.
-C, --compile-only
compile the input files as if they were generated by E-ACSL.
-d, --debug=<N>
pass a value to the Frama-C -debug option. By default the - debug flag is unused.
-v, --verbose=<N>
pass a value to the Frama-C -verbose option. By default the - verbose flag is unused.
-V, --check
check integrity of the generated AST (mostly useful for developers).
-o, --ocode=<FILE>
output the E-ACSL instrumented code to <FILE>. Defaults to a.out.frama.c.
-O, --oexec=<FILE>
output the code compiled from the uninstrumented sources to <FILE>. The executable compiled from the files generated by E-ACSL is appended the .e.acsl suffix. Unless specified, the names of the executables generated from the original and the modified programs are a.out and a.out.e-acsl respectively.
name of the executable file generated from the E-ACSL-instrumented file. Unless specified, the executable is named as inidicated by the --oexec option.
-f, --frama-c-only
run input source files through Frama-C without E-ACSL instrumentations.
-E, --extra-cpp-args=<FLAGS>
pass additional arguments to the Frama-C pre-processor.
-L, --frama-c-stdlib
use the Frama-C standard library instead of a system-wide one.
-M, --full-mmodel
maximize memory-related instrumentation.
-g, --gmp
always use GMP integers instead of C integral types. By default the GMP integers are used on as-needed basis.
-l, --ld-flags=<FLAGS>
pass the specified flags to the linker.
-e, --cpp-flags=<FLAGS>
pass the specified flags to the pre-processor at compile-time. For instrumentation-time pre-processor flags see --extra-cpp-args option.
-q, --quiet
suppress any output except for errors and warnings.
-s, --logfile=<FILE>
redirect all output to a given file.
-F, --frama-c-extra=<FLAGS>
pass an extra option to a Frama-C invocation.
-a, --rte=<OPTSTRING>
annotate a source program with assertions using a run of an RTE plugin prior to E-ACSL. OPTSTRING is a comma-separated string that specifies the types of generated assertions. Valid arguments are:

signed-overflow - signed integer overflows.
unsigned-overflow - unsigned integer overflows.
signed-downcast - signed downcast exceeding destination range.
unsigned-downcast - unsigned downcast exceeding destination range.
mem - pointer or array accesses.
float-to-int - casts from floating-point to integer.
div - division by zero.
shift - left and right shifts by a value out of bounds.
ointer-call - annotate functions calls through pointers.
all - all of the above.
-A, --rte-select=<OPTSTRING>
Restrict annotations to a given list of functions. OPTSTRING is a comma-separated string comprising function names.
-m, --memory-model=<model>
memory model (i.e., a runtime library for checking memory related annotations) to be linked against the instrumented file.
Valid arguments are:
bittree - memory modelling using a Patricia trie.
segment - shadow based segment model.
By default the Patricia trie memory model is used.
Print the names of the supported memory models
-I, --frama-c=<FILE>
the name of the Frama-C executable. By default the first frama-c executable found in the system path is used.
-G, --gcc=<FILE>
the name of the GCC executable. By default the first gcc executable found in the system path is used.
Separate with a -then the first Frama-C options from the actual launch of the E-ACSL plugin. Prepends -e-acsl-prepare to the list of options passed to Frama-C.
Adds <OPTS> to the list of options that will be given to the E-ACSL analysis. Only useful when --then is in use, in which case <OPTS> will be placed after the -then on Frama-C's command-line. Otherwise, equivalent to --frama-c-extra


Successful execution
Invalid user input
Frama-C or GCC error code
Instrumentation- or compile-time error

Instrument foo.c and output the instrumented code to a.out.frama.c. -P -c -ogen_foo.c -Ofoo foo.c
Instrument foo.c, output the instrumented code to gen_foo.c and compile foo.c into foo and gen_foo.c into foo.e-acsl. The -P option specifies that the instrumentation should omit debug functionality. --memory-model=bittree -C gen_foo.c
Assume gen_foo.c has been instrumented by E-ACSL and compile it into a.out.e-acsl using bittree memory model.
