Talk Details

Talk 0

Topic: Coccinelle

Description: When working with large code bases, we may come across situations where the same change has to be applied in multiple instances across the code base. For example, if an API function changes, we have to update all calls to that function, to reflect the new API. Coccinelle is a tool to automate such changes across a C/C++ code base. In this talk, I’ll discuss what Coccinelle is, how to use it and discuss how it is being used in the Linux kernel.
