Go easy, not everyone understands that complex tool - I certainly don't.
I ended up deleting it from my system after several failed attempts, and
I came to the conclusion that to use it properly, you also needed a Julia
installed along side you to learn how to write its scripts.

The big problem is it /doesn't/ do what it advertises to - I ended up
writing expression after expression to make it detect all the various
forms of what I wanted it to, which as I understand the tool is precisely
the opposite of what you're supposed to do with it.

I ended up coming to the conclusion that a well formed sed and/or grep
expression was far more useful and effective than trying to figure out
coccinelle.
