kuipc - the CERN KUIP compiler
kuipc [ options ] [ inputfile [ outputfile ] ]
kuipc, the Kit for a User Interface Package Compiler, is a tool to
simplify the writing of a program's user interface code. It takes as input a
Command Definition File (CDF) that describes the commands to be understood by
the program, and outputs C or FORTRAN code that makes the appropriate function
calls to set up the user interface. This code can then be compiled and linked
with the rest of the program. Since the generated code uses KUIP routines, the
program must also be linked against the Packlib library that contains them.
If no output file is specified, kuipc will output generated code
to a file whose name is the same as the input file's, with the ending '.cdf'
replaced by '.f' or '.c' as appropriate. If neither input nor output file
are given, kuipc will prompt for them. Be careful because kuipc overwrites
existing files with no warning.
- Generate C code.
- Generate FORTRAN code (the default).
- Output several files, one for each time the >Name control line is used
in the CDF input. The names of the output files will correspond to the
arguments given on the >Name control lines.
When the -split option is used, kuipc will still create an output file that it
would have made if -split was not used; the file will be of zero size.
