       barectf - Generate C99 code that can write native CTF packets


       barectf [--prefix=PREFIX] [--dump-config]
               [--code-dir=PATH] [--headers-dir=PATH] [--metadata-dir=PATH]
               [-I PATH]... [--ignore-include-not-found] CONFIG


       The barectf command generates C99 code, that itself can write Common Trace Format
       <> packets natively, out of a YAML configuration input file CONFIG.
       The full documentation of barectf is available on the project’s website

       A prefix is used to scope the generated file names, as well as the generated function
       names, macro names, structure names, and so on. By default, this prefix is barectf_. It
       can be overridden by the configuration file, and ultimately by the --prefix option.

       By default, all generated C and CTF metadata files are written to the current working
       directory. The --code-dir, --headers-dir, and --metadata-dir options are used to control
       where the generated files should go.

       You can add directories to be searched into for inclusion files, before the default search
       directories, by using the -I option one or more times.

       By default, if an inclusion file is not found while processing the configuration file
       CONFIG, an error is emitted. You can instruct barectf to continue silently instead by
       providing the --ignore-include-not-found option.

       To view the effective YAML configuration file used for generating the C and CTF metadata
       files, after having processed all inclusion files, use the --dump-config option.


       -c PATH, --code-dir=PATH
           Write C source files to directory PATH instead of the current working directory.

           Dump the effective YAML configuration file, after all inclusions are processed, to the
           standard output.

       -H PATH, --headers-dir=PATH
           Write C header files to directory PATH instead of the current working directory.

           Do not consider as an error inclusion files that are not found: continue silently.

       -I PATH, --include-dir=PATH
           Prepend PATH to the list of directories to search into for include files. The default
           list of directories is the current working directory, followed by the directory
           containing the provided, "standard" inclusion files.

       -m PATH, --metadata-dir=PATH
           Write CTF metadata file to directory PATH instead of the current working directory.

       -p PREFIX, --prefix=PREFIX
           Override the configuration file’s prefix with PREFIX. This prefix is used in file
           names, function names, macro names, structure names, and the rest. When not specified
           in the configuration file, the default prefix is barectf_.

       -h, --help
           Show command help.

           Show the command’s version.
