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.

       -V, --rt-verbose
              Output extra messages when executing generated code

       -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

       -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.

              enable checking for temporal memory errors in \valid and \valid_read predicates.

              enable  notion  of weak validity. By default expression (p+i), where p is a pointer
              and i is an integer offset is deemed valid if both addresses p and (p+i) belong  to
              the  same allocated block. With weak validity (p+i) is valid if the memory location
              which address is given by expression (p+i) is allocated.

       -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.

              Set the size (in MB) of the stack shadow space

              Set the size (in MB) of the heap shadow space

       -k, --keep-going
              Continue execution after an assertion failure

              Trigger failure if a NULL-pointer is used as an input to free function

              On  assertion  failure  exit with the given integer code intead of raising an abort

       -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.

       --then 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


       0      Successful execution

       1      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.
