Contributing C

Run ./ before committing to format the code.

Configure with cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug or cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo to debug.

Modifying lcm-gen does not rebuild the tests. #490. The following is a workaround:

cd build
rm -r test && make -j
make test

Code Quality

Code in the directory lcmgen leaks memory. It is not an uncommon practice to allow this for short lived CLI tools. It is preferred to avoid and clean up after this practice though. #484.
