it is not supported out of the box, but you may try to use the debugging
information to get this information. However, keep in mind,
that debugging information is best afford and may not be available in
all cases. If you really need accurate feedback based on C-code a source
analysis tool like pet may better fit your needs. pet uses clang and
isl to extract a polyhedral model directly from the source code.
