NAME

       lttng-gen-tp - Generate LTTng-UST tracepoint provider code

SYNOPSIS

       lttng-gen-tp [--verbose] [--output=FILE.c]
                    [--output=FILE.h] [--output=FILE.o] TEMPLATE

DESCRIPTION

       The lttng-gen-tp tool simplifies the generation of LTTng-UST tracepoint provider files. It
       takes a simple template file, TEMPLATE, and generates the necessary C code to use the
       defined tracepoints in your application. See the Template file format section below for
       more information about the format of TEMPLATE.

       Currently, lttng-gen-tp can generate the .h, .c, and .o files associated with your
       tracepoint provider. The generated .h file can be included directly in your application.
       You can let lttng-gen-tp generate the .o file or compile the .c file yourself. See lttng-
       ust(3) for more information about compiling LTTng-UST tracepoint providers.

       By default, lttng-gen-tp generates the .h, .c, and .o files, their basename being the
       basename of TEMPLATE. You can generate one or more specific file types with the --output
       option, repeated if needed.

   Template file format
       The template file, which usually has the .tp extension, contains a list of
       TRACEPOINT_EVENT() definitions and other optional definition entries, like
       TRACEPOINT_LOGLEVEL(). See lttng-ust(3) for the complete list of available definitions.

       The TRACEPOINT_EVENT() definitions are written as you would write them in an LTTng-UST
       template provider header file. C comments are supported (/* */ and //), as well as lines
       starting with #.

           Note
           The provider name (the first argument of TRACEPOINT_EVENT()) must be the same in all
           the TRACEPOINT_EVENT() macros of TEMPLATE.

       Here’s an example:

           TRACEPOINT_EVENT(
               // Tracepoint provider name
               my_provider,

               // Tracepoint/event name
               my_event,

               // Tracepoint arguments (input)
               TP_ARGS(char *, text),

               // Tracepoint/event fields (output)
               TP_FIELDS(
                   ctf_string(message, text)
               )
           )

OPTIONS

       -o, --output=FILE
           Do not generate default files: generate FILE.

           The extension of FILE determines what is generated, amongst .h, .c, and .o. This
           option can be used more than one time to generate different file types.

       -v, --verbose
           Increase verbosity.

       -h, --help
           Show command help.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       CC
           C compiler to use. Default: cc, then gcc if cc is not found. This option is only
           relevant when generating the .o file.

       CFLAGS
           Flags and options passed directly to the compiler ($CC). This option is only relevant
           when generating the .o file.

EXIT STATUS

       0
           Success

       Non-zero
           Error
