NAME         top

       cgcc - Compiler wrapper to run Sparse after compiling

SYNOPSIS         top

       cgcc [SPARSE OPTIONS]... [COMPILER OPTIONS]... [INPUT FILES]...
       make CC=cgcc

DESCRIPTION         top

       cgcc provides a wrapper around a C compiler (cc by default) which
       also invokes the Sparse static analysis tool.

       cgcc accepts all Sparse command-line options, such as warning
       options, and passes all other options through to the compiler.

       By providing the same interface as the C compiler, cgcc allows
       projects to run Sparse as part of their build without modifying their
       build system, by using cgcc as the compiler.  For many projects,
       setting CC=cgcc on the make command-line will work.

ENVIRONMENT         top

       REAL_CC
              If set, cgcc will use this as the compiler to invoke, rather
              than the default cc.

       CHECK  If set, cgcc will use this as the Sparse program to invoke,
              rather than the default sparse.
