Step by step compilation of C Program

0 votes

Recently I was dealing with some problems in Compiler design. What I want is a tool which can do step by step compilation of the C Program. One which performs lexical analysis and gives an output file and then syntax analysis on this output file and so on until the final executable code is obtained. Is there such a tool or technique to do this?

Since the intermediaries are compiler specific, it really depends on
which compiler.

Certainly most tend to be able to give you the output after the
pre-processor, and IIRC the assembly code but not sure about the

Usually you need a command line option; for example in gcc to get the
preprocessor output, I usually stick the following in my Makefiles:

%.pp: %.c
$(CC) $(CFLAGS) -E -c $(@:.pp=.c) > $@

I have few queries about inline function, can anyone please help?

  1. In what stage of compilation inline function is replaced with function call?
  2. Under what conditions inline function will fail?
  3. How to verify whether inline function is successfully replaced or not?
