For an up-to-date-version, clone this repository, use
make setup to install OCaml and all dependencies, and
make to build.
Alternatively: Install opam, and then do
opam install goblint. Warning: The OPAM package is updated infrequently.
If something goes wrong, take a look at travis-ci.sh for an example Ubuntu/macOS setup.
Goblint relies on GNU
cpp to preprocess source files - the default clang
cpp on macOS will not work.
You can install it with
brew install gcc (first do
xcode-select --install if you don't want to build from source). You can check src/config.ml to see what command is used to call
Docker / Virtual machine
You can run Goblint in a Docker container using:
docker run -it voglerr/goblint ./goblint --help.
A virtual machine containing Goblint can be set up using Vagrant:
vagrant up && vagrant ssh.
The analysis results are printed to stdout by default.
--html saves the results as XML, which is then transformed to be viewable in a web browser.
make jar to build the needed Java program.
./goblint --html path/to/file.c
result/index.xml in a browser of your choice.
Depending on the browser security settings, it might be necessary to serve the result directory from a webserver to access it.
This can be done by e.g. running
python3 -m http.server in the
result directory. The results should then be accessible at
