I believe that you would like to see the union of the variations
domains of a and b for the entire execution of the analyzed program,
whereas the various options available for displaying results all
display the values in one particular program point (these options are
using -val with the batch version of Frama-C, inserting calls to
Frama_C_show_each_ab(a,b); in a program point of interest, or using
the GUI to click on l-values).

The unions you would like to see are not available directly. The
solution is to write a short plug-in to compute them. The plug-in
could iterate on all statements and compute the union of the states
attached to each. Such a plug-in would have to use a CIL visitor to
visit all the statements (perhaps the simplest example of use of a CIL
visitor is in file src/inout/ and for each statement, to
use function Db.Value.get_state to get a state that can be accumulated
thanks to Relation_type.Model.join. A good initial value for the
accumulator would be (!Db.Value.initial_state_only_globals)(), or
Relation_type.Model.bottom, depending on what exactly you are trying
to do.
