Creating SystemTap Scripts

Create a SystemTap script by selecting File->New in the IDE Perspective. You'll be prompted to enter a name for the file; make sure that you use a .stp extension or else SystemTap GUI will not recognize the file as a SystemTap script and certain editor and run features will not be active. Your new file will be open and ready for coding in the Editor pane.

A IDE Tutorial is also provided in the help pages for a step by step demo.

For advanced SystemTap langauge help please see the SystemTap Development User's Guide and the documentation available at the SystemTap website's documentation page - http://sourceware.org/systemtap/documentation.html
