The scripts directory holds tools for use in building, generating, testing,
and maintaining the Tor source code. It is mainly for use by developers.
Code maintenance scripts
maint/checkLogs.pl -- Verify that Tor log statements are unique.
maint/check_config_macros.pl -- Look for autoconf tests whose results are
maint/checkOptionDocs.pl -- Make sure that Tor options are documented in the
manpage, and that the manpage only documents real Tor options.
maint/checkSpaces.pl -- Style checker for the Tor source code. Mainly checks
maint/findMergedChanges.pl -- Find a set of changes/* files that have been
merged into an upstream version.
maint/format_changelog.py -- Flow the changelog into the proper format.
maint/redox.py -- Find places that should have DOCDOC comments to indicate a
need for doxygen comments, and put those comments there.
maint/updateVersions.pl -- Update the version number in the .nsi and windows
test/chutney-git-bisect.sh -- a git bisect run script that bisects using
chutney. The script builds tor and tor-gencert, then runs chutney. The script
takes optional arguments for out-of-tree builds, and specific chutney network
flavours. You should copy this script before using it with git bisect, so that
it doesn't change (or disappear) during bisection.
test/cov-blame -- Mash up the results of gcov with git blame. Mainly useful
to find out who has been writing untested code.
test/cov-diff -- Compare two directories of gcov files to identify changed
lines without coverage.
test/coverage -- Generates a directory full of gcov files. You need to use
this script instead of calling gcov directly because of our confusingly named
test/scan-build.sh -- Example script for invoking clang's scan-build
static analysis tools.
Code generation scripts
codegen/gen_linux_syscalls.pl -- Generate a table mapping linux syscall
numbers to their names.
codegen/gen_server_ciphers.py -- Generate a sorted list of TLS ciphersuites
for servers to choose from.
codegen/get_mozilla_ciphers.py -- Generate a list of TLS ciphersuites for
clients to use in order to look like Firefox.
Code transformation scripts
coccinelle/calloc.cocci -- Transform code to replace variants of
malloc(a*b) with calloc(a,b)
