Fedora Update Notification
2007-11-06 16:00:54.882213

Name        : sparse
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 0.4
Release     : 2.fc8
URL         : http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/devel/sparse/
Summary     : A semantic parser of source files
Description :
Sparse is a semantic parser of source files: it's neither a compiler
(although it could be used as a front-end for one) nor is it a
preprocessor (although it contains as a part of it a preprocessing

It is meant to be a small - and simple - library.  Scanty and meager,
and partly because of that easy to use.  It has one mission in life:
create a semantic parse tree for some arbitrary user for further
analysis.  It's not a tokenizer, nor is it some generic context-free
parser.  In fact, context (semantics) is what it's all about - figuring
out not just what the grouping of tokens are, but what the _types_ are
that the grouping implies.

Sparse is primarily used in the development and debugging of the Linux kernel.

Update Information:

Version 0.4 of sparse has numerous fixes and improvements.
There are now man pages for the sparse and cgcc programs.
There is a new program c2xml (with no man page).
