            Bug ID: 46423
           Summary: Match callback invocation order
           Product: new-bugs
           Version: 10.0
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: new bugs

In the documentation for MatchFinder it says "The order of matches is
guaranteed to be equivalent to doing a pre-order traversal on the AST, and
applying the matchers in the order in which they were added to the
MatchFinder." but what I see is more of a breadth-first match order.

Here are my matches. Each match callback just dumps the file and line no.

    ClangTool Tool(OptionsParser.getCompilations(),

    MyMatchCallback Mcb;
    MatchFinder Finder;





    return Tool.run(newFrontendActionFactory(&Finder).get());

I run the tool on this src file:

  1 int fn1(void) {return 1;}
  2 int fn2(void) {return 1;}
  3 int fn3(void) {return 1;}
  4 int fn4(void) {return 1;}
  6 int (main)(void) {
  7     fn1();
  8     return 1;
 10     if (fn2())
 11         return 1;
 13     { /* arbitrary block */
 14         if(fn3())
 15             return 1;
 16     }
 18     fn4();
 20     return 1;
 21 }

This is the output I get:  <file>:<line_no>

    fnDecl main /home/.../match_order_test.c:6
    fn call fn1/home/.../match_order_test.c:7
    Rtn /home/.../match_order_test.c:8
    fn call fn4/home/.../match_order_test.c:18    << hey! line 10 should be
    Rtn /home/.../match_order_test.c:20
    fn call fn2/home/.../match_order_test.c:10
    Rtn /home/.../match_order_test.c:11
    fn call fn3/home/.../match_order_test.c:14
    Rtn /home/.../match_order_test.c:15

I was expecting the matches to be in line-number order.

Looking at the ast-dump of the src file and adding in the order in which the
CallExprs and ReturnStmt's were matched MatchFinder looks to be doing a kind of
breadth-first traversal.

David Rector, has offered some technical details as to what he thinks is
