Reading gcda files [message #1734427] Wed, 08 June 2016 10:53 Go to next message

Hi!

We get errors when reading gcda files and I tried to compare the parser in the plugin with the one in gcov and I found a possible discrepancy. I hope someone can tell me if it is an error or if I misunderstand.

Can a GCOV_TAG_FUNCTION can be followed by several GCOV_TAG_COUNTERs? It looks like it can from reading the gcov_io.h code and from the data files we get, but the plugin parser resets the currentFunction after the first counter tag (around line 200).

Is it a bug?

best regards,
Vlad

My local gcov-io.h has the following for the data file:

function-data: announce_function present counts
counts: header int64:count*

To me, this implies one header for all the counts for the function and thus, one tag.

Are you seeing multiple 0x01a10000 tags?

Hi Jeff, good question!

I have found the gcov-dump utility and it displays different values from what I see the plugin parser outputs. As you can see, the end of the file seems garbled. Other files are OK.

gcov-dump:
01000000:   3:FUNCTION ident=991, lineno_checksum=0xa6b28208, cfg_checksum=0xa43083b8
  01a10000:   2:COUNTERS arcs 1 counts
		0 0
01000000:   3:FUNCTION ident=990, lineno_checksum=0xd2457348, cfg_checksum=0xa43083b8
  01a10000:   2:COUNTERS arcs 1 counts
		0 0


plugin parser:

The corresponding end of the gcda file looks like this from hexdump: (990 is 0x3de)
