assa-genesis - generates skeleton files for RAD development with ASSA library


assa-genesis [OPTIONS] <app_name>


Four files are generated by default:

<app_name>-main.h Header file with debug tracing masks
<app_name>-main.cpp 'main()' function with event loop
<app_name>.h Header file for class <app_name>
<app_name>.cpp Implementation stubs for class <app_name>

In addition, if --gtk2-app options was specified, the MainWindow class is generated:

If {-t, --one-file} switch is used, everything is put in one file, <app_name>.cpp. This is primarily used for writing test programs.

See ASSA User's Guide for further details
