Subject: [PATCH v2 lttng-ust] Introduce vtracef
Date: Wed,  5 Feb 2020 18:36:40 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200205233640.21765-1-maxime.roussinbelanger@gmail.com> (raw)

vtracef accepts a va_list argument to simplify tracing
functions which use a va_list

Here's an example from wpa_supplicant that I wanted to
trace:

void wpa_debug(int level, const char* fmt, ...) {

    va_list ap;
    va_start(ap, fmt);

    ...
    // The call I want to easily trace with vtracef
    vprintf(fmt, ap);

    ...
    va_end(ap);
}

wpa_debug is used a fair amount and it would be annoying to
replace all the wpa_debug calls with tracef.

With vtracef, it simplifies the find and replace effort by
only changing it at one place.

Changes in v2:
	- Add man page
	- Add an example
	- Remove ifdef to guard against systemtap not having va_list

 Link with `-llttng-ust`.
 
 
 DESCRIPTION
 -----------
 The LTTng-UST `tracef()` API allows you to trace your application with
 the help of a simple man:printf(3)-like macro. The 'fmt' argument is
 passed directly to the 'fmt' parameter of man:vasprintf(3), as well as
 the optional parameters following 'fmt'.
 
-To use `tracef()`, include `<lttng/tracef.h>` where you need it, and
-link your application with `liblttng-ust`. See the <<example,EXAMPLE>>
+To use `tracef()` or `vtracef()`, include `<lttng/tracef.h>` where you need it,

-Once your application is instrumented with `tracef()` calls and

-formatted string output.
