Interestingly enough this was passed along to me recently:
Thanks for the pointer!  I hope someone here will take the time to look
into that and see whether it's worth using and is appropriate for something
that a GNU project's procedures should rely on and for integrating with
our procedures for libc.

Thanks, Roland

Sample compatibility reports generated by abi-compliance-checker tool for glibc release versions are available at this URL:

The general use case for glibc is the following:

1. abi-compliance-checker -l glibc -dump 2.14.1.xml
This command will create ABI dump for glibc 2.14.1 (glibc_2.14.1.abi.tar.gz).

2. abi-compliance-checker -l glibc -dump 2.15.xml
This command will create ABI dump for glibc 2.15 (glibc_2.15.abi.tar.gz).

3. abi-compliance-checker -l glibc -d1 glibc_2.14.1.abi.tar.gz -d2 glibc_2.15.abi.tar.gz
This command will compare two dumps and create binary compatibility report between 2.14.1 and 2.15 versions (abi_compat_report.html).

2.14.1.xml and 2.15.xml are XML-descriptors (full template can be generated by "-d" option of abi-compliance-checker):

/* Primary Sections */


        /* path(s) to headers or directories with headers, one per line */

/* path(s) to shared objects or directories with shared objects, one per line */

/* Optional Sections */

        /* headers to skip, one per line */

        /* shared objects to skip, one per line */
