NAME

       eztrace_create_plugin - creates an EZTrace plugin

SYNOPSIS

       eztrace_create [OPTION] FILE

DESCRIPTION

       Generate an EZTrace plugin

OPTIONS

       -I <incdir1,incdir2,..., --include_dir=<incdir1,incdir2,...>>
              Add specific include directories for the compilation of the generated code.

       -o <dir, --output=<dir>>
              Select the output directory.

       -h --help
              Print a brief help message and exits.

EXAMPLES

       eztrace_create_plugin  generates  the  source  code  of  an  EZTrace plugin described by a
       template file. The template file has to be structure as follows:

       --- foo.tpl
       BEGIN_MODULE
       NAME example_lib
       DESC "module for the example library"
       LANGUAGE C
       ID 99
       int foo(int n)
       BEGIN
        EVENT("Do function foo")
       END
       void bar(int n)
       BEGIN
        RECORD_STATE("running function bar")
       END
       END_MODULE
       --- end of foo.tpl

       Passing foo.tpl to eztrace_create_plugin will result in a directory (default: output) that
       contains  the  source code of an EZTrace plugin that intercepts the foo and bar functions.
       $ eztrace_create_plugin foo.tpl
       New Module
       Module name : 'example_lib'
       Module description : '"module for the example library"'
       Language : 'C'
       Module id : '99'
       Function 'foo' done
       Function 'bar' done
       End of Module example_lib

       Once the generated source code is compiled, the resulting plugin can be used with  eztrace
       or eztrace.old:

       $ cd output
       $ make
       $ export EZTRACE_LIBRARY_PATH=$PWD
       $ eztrace_avail
       3       stdio   Module for stdio functions (read, write, select, poll, etc.)
       2        pthread Module for PThread synchronization functions (mutex, semaphore, spinlock,
       etc.)
       6       papi    Module for PAPI Performance counters
       1       omp     Module for OpenMP parallel regions
       4       mpi     Module for MPI functions
       5       memory  Module for memory functions (malloc, free, etc.)
       153     example_lib     module for the example library
       $ eztrace -t example_lib my_application
       [...]
