Summary0001113: Preprocessing code may yield expanded code with undeclared variables
DescriptionSome variables introduced by Frama-C during the preprocessing phase (i.e. the result of "frama-c -print") may not be declared (thus yielding incorrect code).
A simple example where this occurs is when declaring arrays with variable size, e.g.:

int k[2*rounds];

is transformed as

int *k;
__lengthofk = (unsigned int)(2 * rounds);
k = (int *)__builtin_alloca(sizeof(*k) * __lengthofk);

with __lengthofk being left undeclared.

See attached file for a (complete) simple example.

Preprocess code with e.g. a variable-sized array declaration. This is however not the only case where this seem to happen.

In this example, declaration of __lengthofk as unsigned int.
Additional InformationMight be a regression from Carbon.

I have scripts (that I didn't write myself, though, so I may not use them properly) that first preprocess C programs with Frama-C before using again Frama-C on the `expanded' code.
I don't think the previous user of those scripts had any problems with missing declarations when using them on Frama-C B & C, and yet they pretty much always fail for me when using Frama-C N (but succeed when I manually add the missing declarations).

For information, contrary to what I said in the additional info, Carbon seems to exhibit the bug as well.


Fix committed to stable/neon branch.
