CIL is a front-end for the C programming language that facilitates
program analysis and transformation. CIL will parse and typecheck a
program, and compile it into a simplified subset of C.
goblint-cil is a fork of CIL that supports C99, C11 as well as most of the
extensions of the GNU C. It makes many changes to the original CIL in an effort
to modernize it and keep up with the latest versions of the C language. Here is
an incomplete list of some of the ways
goblint-cil improves upon CIL:
Support for C99 and C11.
Compatibility with modern OCaml versions.
Use Zarith instead of Num and use that for integer constants.
Improved locations with columns and spans.
Removal of unmaintained extensions and MSVC support.
Use dune instead of make and ocamlbuild.
Many bug fixes.
Install the latest release of
goblint-cil with opam:
opam install goblint-cil
ATTENTION: Don't install the
cil package. This is the unmaintained
original version of CIL.
Installation from Source
First create a local opam switch and install all dependencies:
opam switch create .
Then, you can use dune to build
goblint-cil. Run the following
commands to build and test
dune build dune runtest # runs the regression test suite
You can also install
goblint-cil into the opam switch:
dune build @install dune install
You can use cilly (installed in the opam switch) as a drop-in
gcc to compile and link your programs.
You can also use
goblint-cil as a library to write your own programs. For
instance in the OCaml toplevel using Findlib:
$ ocaml OCaml version 4.14.0 # #use "topfind";; [...] # #require "goblint-cil";; [...] # GoblintCil.cilVersion;; - : string = "2.0.0"
