The Slcc package (version 0.1-0)
The package provides an S-language user-level interface to C parsing
facilities using a modified version of lcc, a C
compiler. One can get information about the definitions of data
structures, routines and generally top-level C symbols from C source
code. This can be processed in S to automate the generation of S and C
code. Additionally, this package can provide information useful for
providing a summary for understanding C code. These summaries can
include listing routines and data structures, files in which different
elements are defined and referenced, call graphs, etc.
This is unfinished, but the basic facilities and infra-structure are
available. The hope is to get some feedback and to encourage others to
help or take over the development of the package.
The original motivation for using lcc in conjunction with S is to be
able to partially automate the rewriting of C code to be thread-safe.
The current version is available as a GNU-zipped tar file Slcc_0.1-0.tar.gz
This is known to run on different variants of Linux.
It currently fails at runtime on Solaris.
See the INSTALL.html for instructions
installing the package.
There are some documents describing how one might use
- Examples of using Slcc, including
generating routine registration tables,
copying C structures to S objects,
a SWIG-like interface generator.
- Function documentation
Documentation for the functions in the Slcc package.
