+.IX Title "BUGPOINT 1"
+.TH BUGPOINT 1 "2006-09-13" "CVS" "LLVM Command Guide"
+bugpoint \- automatic test case reduction tool
+.IX Header "SYNOPSIS"
+\&\fBbugpoint\fR [\fIoptions\fR] [\fIinput \s-1LLVM\s0 ll/bc files\fR] [\fI\s-1LLVM\s0 passes\fR] \fB\-\-args\fR
+\&\fIprogram arguments\fR
+\&\fBbugpoint\fR narrows down the source of problems in \s-1LLVM\s0 tools and passes. It
+can be used to debug three types of failures: optimizer crashes, miscompilations
+by optimizers, or bad native code generation (including problems in the static
+and \s-1JIT\s0 compilers). It aims to reduce large test cases to small, useful ones.
+For more information on the design and inner workings of \fBbugpoint\fR, as well as
+advice for using bugpoint, see \fIllvm/docs/Bugpoint.html\fR in the \s-1LLVM\s0
+.IX Header "OPTIONS"
+.IP "\fB\-\-additional\-so\fR \fIlibrary\fR" 4
+.IX Item "--additional-so library"
+Load the dynamic shared object \fIlibrary\fR into the test program whenever it is
+run. This is useful if you are debugging programs which depend on non-LLVM
+libraries (such as the X or curses libraries) to run.
+.IP "\fB\-\-args\fR \fIprogram args\fR" 4
+.IX Item "--args program args"
+Pass all arguments specified after \-args to the test program whenever it runs.
+Note that if any of the \fIprogram args\fR start with a '\-', you should use:
+.Vb 1
+\& bugpoint [bugpoint args] --args -- [program args]
+The \*(L"\-\-\*(R" right after the \fB\-\-args\fR option tells \fBbugpoint\fR to consider any
+options starting with \f(CW\*(C`\-\*(C'\fR to be part of the \fB\-\-args\fR option, not as options to
+\&\fBbugpoint\fR itself.
+.IP "\fB\-\-tool\-args\fR \fItool args\fR" 4
+.IX Item "--tool-args tool args"
+Pass all arguments specified after \-\-tool\-args to the \s-1LLVM\s0 tool under test
+(\fBllc\fR, \fBlli\fR, etc.) whenever it runs. You should use this option in the
+following way:
+.Vb 1
+\& bugpoint [bugpoint args] --tool-args -- [tool args]
+The \*(L"\-\-\*(R" right after the \fB\-\-tool\-args\fR option tells \fBbugpoint\fR to consider any
+options starting with \f(CW\*(C`\-\*(C'\fR to be part of the \fB\-\-tool\-args\fR option, not as
+options to \fBbugpoint\fR itself. (See \fB\-\-args\fR, above.)
+.IP "\fB\-\-check\-exit\-code\fR=\fI{true,false}\fR" 4
+.IX Item "--check-exit-code={true,false}"
+Assume a non-zero exit code or core dump from the test program is a failure.
+Defaults to true.
+.IP "\fB\-\-disable\-{dce,simplifycfg}\fR" 4
+.IX Item "--disable-{dce,simplifycfg}"
+Do not run the specified passes to clean up and reduce the size of the test
+program. By default, \fBbugpoint\fR uses these passes internally when attempting to
+reduce test programs. If you're trying to find a bug in one of these passes,
+\&\fBbugpoint\fR may crash.
+.IP "\fB\-find\-bugs\fR" 4
+.IX Item "-find-bugs"
+Continually randomize the specified passes and run them on the test program
+until a bug is found or the user kills \fBbugpoint\fR.
+.IP "\fB\-\-help\fR" 4
+.IX Item "--help"
+Print a summary of command line options.
+.IP "\fB\-\-input\fR \fIfilename\fR" 4
+.IX Item "--input filename"
+Open \fIfilename\fR and redirect the standard input of the test program, whenever
+it runs, to come from that file.
+.IP "\fB\-\-load\fR \fIplugin\fR" 4
+.IX Item "--load plugin"
+Load the dynamic object \fIplugin\fR into \fBbugpoint\fR itself. This object should
+register new optimization passes. Once loaded, the object will add new command
+line options to enable various optimizations. To see the new complete list of
+optimizations, use the \fB\-\-help\fR and \fB\-\-load\fR options together; for example:
+.Vb 1
+\& bugpoint --load --help
+.IP "\fB\-\-output\fR \fIfilename\fR" 4
+.IX Item "--output filename"
+Whenever the test program produces output on its standard output stream, it
+should match the contents of \fIfilename\fR (the \*(L"reference output\*(R"). If you
+do not use this option, \fBbugpoint\fR will attempt to generate a reference output
+by compiling the program with the C backend and running it.
+.IP "\fB\-\-profile\-info\-file\fR \fIfilename\fR" 4
+.IX Item "--profile-info-file filename"
+Profile file loaded by \fB\-\-profile\-loader\fR.
+.IP "\fB\-\-run\-{int,jit,llc,cbe}\fR" 4
+.IX Item "--run-{int,jit,llc,cbe}"
+Whenever the test program is compiled, \fBbugpoint\fR should generate code for it
+using the specified code generator. These options allow you to choose the
+interpreter, the \s-1JIT\s0 compiler, the static native code compiler, or the C
+backend, respectively.
+.IP "\fB\-\-enable\-valgrind\fR" 4
+.IX Item "--enable-valgrind"
+Use valgrind to find faults in the optimization phase. This will allow
+bugpoint to find otherwise asymptomatic problems caused by memory
+If \fBbugpoint\fR succeeds in finding a problem, it will exit with 0. Otherwise,
+if an error occurs, it will exit with a non-zero value.

+.IX Header "AUTHOR"
