Name        : sparse
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 0.4.1
Release     : 1.fc7
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 0.4.1 of sparse fixes some bugs, including problems with handling the most recent Linux kernel source code.
