GCOV2PERL(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	  GCOV2PERL(1)

NAME
       gcov2perl - convert gcov	files to Devel::Cover databases

VERSION
       version 1.36

SYNOPSIS
	gcov2perl -h -i	-v -db database	gcov_files

DESCRIPTION
       Convert gcov files to Devel::Cover databases.

OPTIONS
       The following command line options are supported:

	-db database	- specify the database to use

	-h -help	- show help
	-i -info	- show documentation
	-v -version	- show version

DETAILS
       To obtain coverage of XS	files they must	first be compiled with the
       appropriate options.  In	a standard Makefile environment, such as that
       created by ExtUtils::MakeMaker, this can	be accomplished	with the
       command:

	HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES=-MDevel::Cover make test \
	  CCFLAGS=-O0\ -fprofile-arcs\ -ftest-coverage \
	  OTHERLDFLAGS=-fprofile-arcs\ -ftest-coverage

       If you have already built your object files it may be necessary to run
       make clean first, or to find some other way to ensure that they get
       rebuilt with the	options	gcov requires.

       Now the code coverage data has been collected "gcov" needs to be	run:

	gcov Mylib.xs

       This will create	one or more gcov files on which	you can	run
       "gcov2perl":

	gcov2perl Mylib.xs.gcov

       Finally,	"cover"	should be run as usual with any	options	required:

	cover

       If you are running everything with standard options, you	can do all
       this with one command:

	cover -test

EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values are returned:

	0   All	files converted	successfully
	>0  An error occurred.
