Coccinelle: Automating Large-scale Evolution and Bug Finding in C CodeDate: Feb 2, 20217:30AM - 9:00AM PST (UTC-8) LF Live Mentorship Series
Join us for Coccinelle: Automating Large-scale Evolution and Bug Finding in C Code, with Julia Lawall, Senior Research Scientist, Inria.
Coccinelle is a program transformation tool for C code. Short scripts expressed using a patch-like syntax make it possible to make changes consistently and reliably across a C codebase. In this talk, we will see how to use existing scripts in the Linux kernel, write new scripts for some simple changes, and give an overview of more advanced concepts.
The session will begin with an overview by Julia Lawall (45 minutes) and will be followed by Q&A – an opportunity to both ask Julia questions and for group discussion (45 minutes).
