DESCRIPTION

The check-abi script reports any potential ABI conflicts in the files specified. This includes the use of the -fshort-enums option, the -fstack-protector option and the -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE option. All of these can affect passing data between functions and hence should be used uniformly throughout the binary.

The script accepts the following command line options:

--help
-h
Displays the usage of the script and then exits.
--version
-v
Displays the version of the script.
--verbose
-V
Enables verbose mode, causing the script to detail each action it takes.
--quiet
-q
Do not include the name of script in the out generated by the script.
--silent
-s
Produce no output. Just return an exit status.
--inconsitencies
-i
Only report files with potential ABI problems.
--ignore-unknown
Do not report file types that are not supported or recognised.
--ignore-ABI|enum|FORTIFY|stack-prot
Disables individual ABI checks. Multiple occurences of this option accumulate. Possible option values are:
ABI
Disable checks of the general ABI information.
enum
Disable checks of the -fshort-enum option.
FORTIFY
Disable checks of the -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE option.
stack-prot
Disable checks of the -fstack-protect option.
--tmpdir=dir
-t=dir
Directory to use to store temporary files.
--readelf=path
-r=path
Use the specified program to read the notes from the files.
--
Stop accumulating command line options. This allows the script to be run on files whose names starts with a dash.
