Re: [csmith-dev] How to use test_csmith.pl

Hi Shakthi,

The short answer is that test_csmith.pl is a script that we probably didn't mean to release. It has little to offer you.

The longer answer is that we sometimes use the script to test Csmith itself.

RunSafely.sh is a little script we borrowed from LLVM (I think) and a copy is attached. We should either add it to the Csmith release tarball or else remove test_csmith.pl.

KCC is here:


It's not clear that adding a "make check" solves any pressing problem with Csmith, so I doubt we'll do it.

In csmith-2.1.0, there is scripts/test_csmith.pl.

#1 How should that be run against a built csmith executable? I built
the csmith binary and running scripts/test_csmith.pl tries to run
RunSafely.sh, but doesn't find it. I see two of them available at


Is it possible to have a "make check" target in the Makefile that can
run tests on the built csmith executable?

#2 What is KCC?
