rtl2dot

Create C callgraphs from gcc rtldumps via GraphViz.

Based on egypt, rewritten in python with added support for configurable root nodes and omission by regex. May or may not work with C++ code.

Usage

Compile your code with -fdump-rtl-expand (eg. by running make CFLAGS=-fdump-rtl-expand). This will generate some new files, most commonly with the extension .expand.

Run rtl2dot myproject.beepbop.expand | dot -Tsvg > myproject.svg to get a graph of the main function of your project.

Valid options are:

  • --ignore <regex> Regular expression describing function names to be ignored
  • --root <function> Select the function to use as root node of the graph
  • --local Ignore functions that are not defined within the rtl dump (most likely library functions)
  • --indirect Draw a dashed line when the address of a function is taken

Any other arguments are treated as input files. If no input files are given, input is expected on stdin.

Example

./rtl2dot.py smtpd.expand --root core_loop --ignore "client_send|logprintf|common_*" --local | dot -Tsvg > smtpd.svg
