cswrap: generic compiler wrapper
cswrap - generic compiler wrapper
cswrap is a generic compiler wrapper that translates relative paths to absolute paths in diagnostic messages. Create a symbolic link to cswrap named as your compiler (gcc, g++, ...) and put it to your $PATH.
Translated diagnostic messages are decorated by suffix <--[TOOL] if they are produced by a tool named TOOL (given by cswrap invokation via symlink named TOOL). This only applies to translated diagnostic messages, which does not include code snippets, for instance.
If cswrap is installed on system, the following command activates the wrapper:
export PATH="`cswrap --print-path-to-wrap`:$PATH"
- Prints basic usage information.
- Prints path to the directory with symlinks to the cswrap executable.
- If set to a non-empty string, cswrap captures diagnostic messages into a file named $CSWRAP_CAP_FILE. In this case, the capture file is protected by a lock named /cswrap_cap_file_lock in order to obtain consistent output when running multiple compiler processes in parallel.
- If set to a positive integer, cswrap installs a timeout for the compiler being wrapped. If the specified amount of time (given in seconds) elapses the compiler process is signalled by SIGTERM. Note the cswrap process waits till the compiler process finishes in any case.
- Colon-separated list of programs (compilers) that $CSWRAP_TIMEOUT should be applied to. If $CSWRAP_TIMEOUT_FOR is unset or empty, $CSWRAP_TIMEOUT applies to all programs.
- cswrap expects a colon-separated list of compiler flags that should be removed from command line prior to invoking the compiler. The parameters are matched for exact match and they are case-sensitive. If a compiler flag appears in the command line multiple times, all its occurrences are removed. $CSWRAP_DEL_CFLAGS applies to compilation of C sources only. $CSWRAP_DEL_CXXFLAGS applies to compilation of C++ sources only. Flags to be removed can be specified by shell wildcard patterns (using the format accepted by fnmatch(3)).
- cswrap expects a colon-separated list of compiler flags that should be appended to command line prior to invoking the compiler. The flags are appended even if they already appear in the command line and they are always appended at the end of the command line. $CSWRAP_ADD_CFLAGS applies to compilation of C sources only. $CSWRAP_ADD_CXXFLAGS applies to compilation of C++ sources only.
