This is a moderately intrusive change. The basic overall effect:
Debugging messages are now controlled, not by a numeric "level",
but by a series of flags, which are expressed as a string of
letters. Each flag has a single-letter form used for string
specifications, a name, a description, a numeric value (1 through N),
and a flag value (which is 1 << the numeric value). (This does mean
that no flag has the value 1, so we only have 31 bits available.
Tiny violins play.)
The other significant change is that the pseudo_debug calls
are now implemented with a do/while macro containing a conditional,
so that computationally-expensive arguments are never evaluated
if the corresponding debug flags weren't set. The assumption is
that in the vast majority of cases (specifically, all of them
so far) the debug flags for a given call are a compile-time constant,
so the nested conditional will never actually show up in code
when compiled with optimization; we'll just see the appropriate
The VERBOSE flag is magical, in that if the VERBOSE flag is
used in a message, the debug flags have to have both VERBOSE and
at least one other flag for the call to be made.
This should dramatically improve performance for a lot of cases
without as much need for PSEUDO_NDEBUG, and improve the ability of
users to get coherent debugging output that means something and is
relevant to a given case.
It's also intended to set the stage for future development work
involving improving the clarity and legibility of pseudo's diagnostic
messages in general.
Old things which used numeric values for PSEUDO_DEBUG will sort
of continue to work, though they will almost always be less verbose
than they used to. There should probably be a pass through adding
"| PDBGF_CONSISTENCY" to a lot of the messages that are specific
to some other type.
Send program name (program_invocation_name from glibc) along with the
Along the way, restructure the fds/pids/tags arrays to be an array
of client structures in pseudo_server, and add the message type
to the set of things logged -- logging that a message was a ping is
more useful than appending the text "ping" to it. Add support
for type and program to pseudolog.
Add deletion to pseudolog.
Handle usage message formatting when there's an odd number of known
specifiers for pseudolog.
This allows us to track execution, although the tracking for it
requires some additional thought -- the basic assumption is that we
don't want to canonicalize names into the chroot() directory, but
since all the filename canonicalization assumes that we want this,
that will take some sneaking. It's a little useful as is, though,
so I'm running with it.
This patch adds support for checking whether a file was opened for
reading, writing, or both, as well as tracking append flags. It is
not very well tested. This is preparation for improved host
Add the -h (help) option to pseudo, and document -h for both
pseudo and pseudolog.
