Bug#757939: ITP: libabigail -- ABI Generic Analysis and Instrumentation Library

Package: wnpp

Description: ABI Generic Analysis and Instrumentation Library
 This is an interface to the GNU Compiler Collection for the collection
 and analysis of compiler-generated binaries.
License: LGPL-3 or later

This project aims at providing a C++ library for constructing, manipulating,
serializing and de-serializing ABI-relevant artifacts. The set of artifacts that
we are interested in is made of constructions like types, variables, functions
and declarations of a given library or program. For a given program or library,
this set of constructions is called an ABI corpus.

Thus the project aims at providing a library to manipulate ABI corpuses, compare
them, provide detailed information about their differences and help build tools
to infer interesting conclusions about these differences.
