       nccgen - source code analysis


       nccgen file.c


       nccgen  is  a program that can help you hack/study the source code of C programs.  It will
       report which functions call which other functions, which functions  are  called  by  other
       functions  and what global variables and members of structures are used by functions. This
       is useful if you want to analyse a program and eventually hack it.


       To use nccgen find the Makefile of the program you want to analyse. In the Makefile locate
       the  line  which sets the C compiler. That is usually something like CC = gcc and you must
       change it to CC = nccgen -ncgcc -ncld -ncfabs.  Then compile the application.  It  may  be
       useful  to also replace AR = ar with AR = nccar and LD = ld with LD = nccld to link nccout
       object files.


       nccgen will produce a file with nccout extension for every C file analysed.  Then you  can
       use  the  viewer  nccnav (with nccnav program.nccout ) to view this data and do your work.
       If the procedure of make links object files with "ar" or "ld" you should manually link the
       produced .nccout files.
