llvm-locstats - Man Page

calculate statistics on DWARF debug location

Synopsis

llvm-locstats [options] [filename]

Description

llvm-locstats works like a wrapper around llvm-dwarfdump. It parses llvm-dwarfdump statistics regarding debug location by pretty printing it in a more human readable way.

The line 0% shows the number and the percentage of DIEs with no location information, but the line 100% shows the information for DIEs where there is location information in all code section bytes (where the variable or parameter is in the scope). The line [50%,60%) shows the number and the percentage of DIEs where the location information is between 50 and 60 percentage of its scope covered.

Options

--only-variables

calculate the location statistics only for local variables

--only-formal-parameters

calculate the location statistics only for formal parameters

--ignore-debug-entry-values

ignore the location statistics on locations containing the debug entry values DWARF operation

--draw-plot

make histogram of location buckets generated (requires matplotlib)

Exit Status

llvm-locstats returns 0 if the input file were parsed successfully. Otherwise, it returns 1.

Example 1

Pretty print the location coverage on the standard output.
