[Frama-c-discuss] Error on using pp-annot

Yes, you are right, my success mail was premature. I discovered that
-fpreprocessed blocks all preprocessing, not only the pre-includes.

Here is my little example code:
//file: constant.h

#define MAX (10)
   @  requires 0 <= val;
   @  requires val <= MAX;
   @  ensures \result == 2*\old(val);
int double_it(int val);
//file: constant.c

#include "constant.h"

int double_it(int val) {
   if ( (val < 0) || (val > MAX))
   return 2*val;


Here is my frama-c command with response:

frama-c -cpp-extra-args="-I /usr/share/frama-c/libc" \
> -cpp-extra-args="-nostdinc" -cpp-extra-args="-ffreestanding" \
> -wp -wp-rte -pp-annot constant.c -print
[kernel] preprocessing with "gcc -C -E -I. -ffreestanding -nostdinc -I /usr/share/frama-c/libc -dD constant.c"
/usr/include/stdc-predef.h:1:[kernel] user error: unexpected token '/'
[kernel] user error: skipping file "constant.c" that has errors.

I will give Clang a try. And, by the way, thanks for dealing with the
