The package is composed of three separate components:
- libmat is the shared library that instruments the memory allocation.
- matl is a small launcher that helps instrument a program with libmat.
- mat is the analysis tool.
matl are written in C and mat is written in Ada which requires
the GNAT Ada compiler. By default the mat component is not built.
Building the libmat and matl launcher
If you only need
matl, configure as follows:
If the C compiler supports TLS, you may enable the TLS support in
The configure script does not detect this and you can activate it
by adding the
--enable-tls option to the
If you're using a cross compilation environment, you should indicate to the configure your target host. For example to build for a remote mips system, use:
./configure --host="mips-uclibc-linux" --target=mips-uclibc-linux
Once configured, build and install as follows:
make make install
Building the MAT analysis tool
mat analysis tool requires an Ada compiler as well as several components.
On Ubuntu, you will need the following components that you may install as follows:
sudo apt-get install gnat gprbuild binutils-dev libiberty-dev libreadline6-dev
Then, you must configure, build and install with:
./configure --enable-mat --enable-ada-util --enable-ada-bfd make make install
