The Checked C clang repo

This repo contains a version of the LLVM/Clang toolchain that is being modified to support Checked C. Checked C extends C with checking to detect or prevent common programming errors such as out-of-bounds memory accesses. The Checked C specification is available at the Checked C repo.

Announcements

Source code update

On Feb 19, 2021 we updated the checkedc-clang sources to upstream release_110, specifically this commit.

On Feb 18, 2020 we updated the checkedc-clang sources to upstream release_90, specifically this commit.

Transition to monorepo

Early in 2019, the LLVM community transitioned to "monorepo".

We moved Checked C to a monorepo on Oct 30, 2019. This has resulted in the following changes:

  1. checkedc-llvm and checkedc-clang (as well as other LLVM subprojects) are now tracked via a single git repo.

  2. The checkedc-llvm repo will no longer be maintained. The checkedc-clang repo will be the new monorepo.

  3. There will be no changes to the checkedc repo. It will continue to be a separate git repo.

  4. All future patches should be based off this new monorepo.

  5. You can use this script to cherry-pick your existing patches to the new monorepo.

  6. Make sure to set the following CMake flag to enable clang in your builds: -DLLVM_ENABLE_PROJECTS=clang

Trying out Checked C

Programmers are welcome to use Checked C as it is being implemented. We have pre-built compiler installers for Windows available for download on the release page. For other platforms, you will have to build your own copy of the compiler. For directions on how to do this, see the Checked C clang wiki. The compiler user manual is here. For more information on Checked C and pointers to example code, see our Wiki.

3C: Semi-automated conversion of C code to Checked C

This repository includes a tool called 3C that partially automates the conversion of C code to Checked C. Quick documentation links:
