"""Script to bisect over files in an rsp file.
This is mostly used for detecting which file contains a miscompile between two
compiler revisions. It does this by bisecting over an rsp file. Between two
build directories, this script will make the rsp file reference the current
build directory's version of some set of the rsp's object files/libraries, and
reference the other build directory's version of the same files for the
remaining set of object files/libraries.
Build the target in two separate directories with the two compiler revisions,
keeping the rsp file around since ninja by default deletes the rsp file after
$ ninja -d keeprsp mytarget
Create a script to build the target and run an interesting test. Get the
command to build the target via
$ ninja -t commands | grep mytarget
The command to build the target should reference the rsp file.
This script doesn't care if the test script returns 0 or 1 for specifically the
successful or failing test, just that the test script returns a different
return code for success vs failure.
Since the command that `ninja -t commands` is run from the build directory,
usually the test script cd's to the build directory.
$ --test=path/to/test_script --rsp=path/to/build/target.rsp
where --other_rel_path is the relative path from the first build directory to
the other build directory. This is prepended to files in the rsp.
For a full example, if the foo target is suspected to contain a miscompile in
some file, have two different build directories, buildgood/ and buildbad/ and
$ ninja -d keeprsp foo
in both so we have two versions of all relevant object files that may contain a
miscompile, one built by a good compiler and one by a bad compiler.
In buildgood/, run
$ ninja -t commands | grep '-o .*foo'
to get the command to link the files together. It may look something like
clang -o foo @foo.rsp
Now create a test script that runs the link step and whatever test reproduces a
miscompile and returns a non-zero exit code when there is a miscompile. For
# immediately bail out of script if any command returns a non-zero return code
set -e
clang -o foo @foo.rsp
With buildgood/ as the working directory, run
$ path/to/llvm-project/llvm/utils/ \
--test=path/to/test_script --rsp=./foo.rsp --other_rel_path=../buildbad/
If rsp_bisect is successful, it will print the first file in the rsp file that
when using the bad build directory's version causes the test script to return a
different return code. foo.rsp.0 and foo.rsp.1 will also be written. foo.rsp.0
will be a copy of foo.rsp with the relevant file using the version in
buildgood/, and foo.rsp.1 will be a copy of foo.rsp with the relevant file
using the version in buildbad/.
