SubjectANNOUNCE: gcml2 0.7
G'day,

gcml2 is (among other things) a Linux kconfig language syntax
checker. Version 0.7 is available at

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=18813&release_id=106023

and

http://www.alphalink.com.au/~gnb/gcml2/download.html

There's also an online summary of the warnings and errors from the
syntax checker, with real examples, from

http://www.alphalink.com.au/~gnb/gcml2/checker.html

Here's the change log


* Warnings can be individually enabled. Default set depends
on whether the parser is in merge mode. API functions to
enable/disable warnings by index and convert a string name
to an index.

* Added check for define to nonliteral expression.

* More precise check for ambiguous comparison against "n" only
complains for symbols which are forward-declared at the point
when compared.

* Made inconsistent-tag warnings more precise; doesn't
emit spurious warnings about define_bool not having an
(EXPERIMENTAL) tag.

* More precise check for forward references and forward
dependencies can tell the difference between forward and
undeclared, at the cost of some storage.

* Check for overlapping definitions by reducing conditions to
disjunctive normal forms.

* Added check for forward dependencies.

* Added check for misuse of and dependency on arch-constant
symbols like CONFIG_X86.

* Renamed summarise-warnings.awk -> summarize.awk and installed
it.

* Added cml-summarize shell script, which runs summarize.awk.

* Added cml-check-all shell script, based on old dochecks.sh,
but now also handles running cml-summarize.

* Added manpages for cml-check, cml-check-all and
cml-summarize. Description of errors and warnings for the
cml-check manpage is controlled in HTML and shared with the
web page.

* RPM package support: added spec file, rpm: target.
