Pardon the ignorance, but I couldn't find this on the manual...
I have a program where, after parsing, some warnings of this form are emitted:
"Calling undeclared function __builtin_swap32. Old style K&R code?"
I know there is a missing source file somewhere in my project, but I'd like to know who is calling these functions (since they are never directly called in my code). So I right-click on the function prototype on the GUI, and the last button in the context menu is "Callers ...". If I click on it, the "Launching analysis" window is displayed, with no indication of which analysis to choose.
I suppose the analysis I'd like is "Syntactic callgraph". So I choose it, without customizing any options, click Execute, but nothing changes. The "Callers ..." button is always visible when right-clicking the function declaration.
I noticed that if I choose the "Users" analysis, when right-clicking afterwards there is no more "Callers ..." button on the context menu, but I fail to see how any of the new options (e.g. Dependencies) could help me identify the function callers.
Is there a simpler way, other than by manually parsing the DOT file (the produced graph is too large for me to visually inspect it), to obtain information about function callers?
