/* Coverage information is held in two files. A notes file, which is
generated by the compiler, and a data file, which is generated by
the program under test. Both files use a similar structure. We do
not attempt to make these files backwards compatible with previous
versions, as you only need coverage information when developing a
program. We do hold version information, so that mismatches can be
detected, and we use a format that allows tools to skip information
they do not understand or are not interested in.
Numbers are recorded in the 32 bit unsigned binary form of the
endianness of the machine generating the file. 64 bit numbers are
stored as two 32 bit numbers, the low part first. Strings are
padded with 1 to 4 NUL bytes, to bring the length up to a multiple
of 4. The number of 4 bytes is stored, followed by the padded
string. Zero length and NULL strings are simply stored as a length
of zero (they have no trailing NUL or padding).
int32: byte3 byte2 byte1 byte0 | byte0 byte1 byte2 byte3
int64: int32:low int32:high
string: int32:0 | int32:length char* char:0 padding
padding: | char:0 | char:0 char:0 | char:0 char:0 char:0
item: int32 | int64 | string
The basic format of the files is
file : int32:magic int32:version int32:stamp record*
The magic ident is different for the notes and the data files. The
magic ident is used to determine the endianness of the file, when
reading. The version is the same for both files and is derived
from gcc's version number. The stamp value is used to synchronize
note and data files and to synchronize merging within a data
file. It need not be an absolute time stamp, merely a ticker that
increments fast enough and cycles slow enough to distinguish
different compile/run/compile cycles.
Although the ident and version are formally 32 bit numbers, they
are derived from 4 character ASCII strings. The version number
consists of the single character major version number, a two
character minor version number (leading zero for versions less than
10), and a single character indicating the status of the release.
That will be 'e' experimental, 'p' prerelease and 'r' for release.
Because, by good fortune, these are in alphabetical order, string
collating can be used to compare version strings. Be aware that
the 'e' designation will (naturally) be unstable and might be
incompatible with itself. For gcc 3.4 experimental, it would be
'304e' (0x33303465). When the major version reaches 10, the
letters A-Z will be used. Assuming minor increments releases every
6 months, we have to make a major increment every 50 years.
Assuming major increments releases every 5 years, we're ok for the
next 155 years -- good enough for me.
A record has a tag, length and variable amount of data.
record: header data
header: int32:tag int32:length
data: item*
Records are not nested, but there is a record hierarchy. Tag
numbers reflect this hierarchy. Tags are unique across note and
data files. Some record types have a varying amount of data. The
LENGTH is the number of 4bytes that follow and is usually used to
determine how much data. The tag value is split into 4 8-bit
fields, one for each of four possible levels. The most significant
is allocated first. Unused levels are zero. Active levels are
odd-valued, so that the LSB of the level is one. A sub-level
incorporates the values of its superlevels. This formatting allows
you to determine the tag hierarchy, without understanding the tags
themselves, and is similar to the standard section numbering used
in technical documents. Level values [1..3f] are used for common
tags, values [41..9f] for the notes file and [a1..ff] for the data
The basic block graph file contains the following records
note: unit function-graph*
unit: header int32:checksum string:source
function-graph: announce_function basic_blocks {arcs | lines}*
announce_function: header int32:ident int32:checksum
string:name string:source int32:lineno
basic_block: header int32:flags*
arcs: header int32:block_no arc*
arc: int32:dest_block int32:flags
lines: header int32:block_no line*
int32:0 string:NULL
line: int32:line_no | int32:0 string:filename
The BASIC_BLOCK record holds per-bb flags. The number of blocks
can be inferred from its data length. There is one ARCS record per
basic block. The number of arcs from a bb is implicit from the
data length. It enumerates the destination bb and per-arc flags.
There is one LINES record per basic block, it enumerates the source
lines which belong to that basic block. Source file names are
introduced by a line number of 0, following lines are from the new
source file. The initial source file for the function is NULL, but
the current source file should be remembered from one LINES record
to the next. The end of a block is indicated by an empty filename
- this does not reset the current source file. Note there is no
ordering of the ARCS and LINES records: they may be in any order,
interleaved in any manner. The current filename follows the order
the LINES records are stored in the file, *not* the ordering of the
blocks they are for.
The data file contains the following records.
data: {unit function-data* summary:object summary:program*}*
unit: header int32:checksum
function-data: announce_function arc_counts
announce_function: header int32:ident int32:checksum
arc_counts: header int64:count*
summary: int32:checksum {count-summary}GCOV_COUNTERS
count-summary: int32:num int32:runs int64:sum
int64:max int64:sum_max
The ANNOUNCE_FUNCTION record is the same as that in the note file,
but without the source location. The ARC_COUNTS gives the counter
values for those arcs that are instrumented. The SUMMARY records
give information about the whole object file and about the whole
program. The checksum is used for whole program summaries, and
disambiguates different programs which include the same
instrumented object file. There may be several program summaries,
each with a unique checksum. The object summary's checksum is zero.
Note that the data file might contain information from several runs
concatenated, or the data might be merged.
This file is included by both the compiler, gcov tools and the
runtime support library libgcov. IN_LIBGCOV and IN_GCOV are used to
distinguish which case is which. If IN_LIBGCOV is nonzero,
libgcov is being built. If IN_GCOV is nonzero, the gcov tools are
being built. Otherwise the compiler is being built. IN_GCOV may be
positive or negative. If positive, we are compiling a tool that
requires additional functions (see the code for knowledge of what
those functions are). */
