[Frama-c-discuss] Scope plugin from command line


Basically what I'm trying to do is obtain data dependencies for each PP 
in the program in an automated manner and use this info for something 
else that works directly on the source code. This is why I needed the 
[Elem]-to-line number mapping.

I implemented the patch that Pascal gave and it seems to have solved my 
problems. I just wrote an external program to extract the information I 
need from the -pdg output. Should there be any other problem I'll get 
back to you.

Thanks for the help!
