csgcca - Man Page

a compiler wrapper that runs the GCC analyzer in background


csgcca [--help | --print-path-to-wrap]


csgcca is a compiler wrapper that runs gcc -fanalyzer in background. Create a symbolic link to csgcca named as your compiler and put it to your $PATH.

The following parameters are given to the GCC analyzer by default:

The following parameters are passed to the GCC analyzer from compiler’s command line:

If csgcca is installed on system, the following command activates the wrapper:

export PATH="$(csgcca --print-path-to-wrap):$PATH"



Prints basic usage information.


Prints path to the directory with symlinks to the csgcca executable.

Exit Status

csgcca propagates the exit status returned by the compiler (in case csgcca succeeds to run the compiler). The exit status returned by the GCC analyzer does not affect the resulting exit status.

Environment Variables


If set to a non-empty string, csgcca outputs the list of parameters given to the GCC analyzer to the standard output.


csgcca expects a colon-separated list of GCC options that should be appended to command line prior to invoking the GCC analyzer. The options are appended even if they already appear in the command line and they are always appended at the end of the command line.


If set to a non-empty string, csgcca will use the value as a path (relative or absolute) to analyzer binary.
