NAME

p2cc - Pascal compiler using p2c  

SYNOPSIS

p2cc [ options and files ]  

DESCRIPTION

P2cc is a Pascal compiler that works by running p2c, the Pascal to C translator, followed by cc, the C compiler.

All command-line options and arguments are passed directly to the C compiler, except that files ending with .p or .pas are passed through p2c first, and that the options listed below are interpreted specially by p2cc. As usual, programs made up of several source modules can be compiled all on one p2cc command, or separately using p2cc -c and then linked afterwards with a final p2cc command.  

OPTIONS

-p2c
Translate .p and .pas files to C but do not compile the resulting .c files. This is analogous to the -S and -c options of most C compilers, which stop with assembly language or unlinked object files, respectively.
-p2coption
Pass option to p2c rather than to the C compiler.
-O
This switch is passed on to the C compiler to enable optional optimization of the program. It also instructs p2c to do a few optimizations of its own, e.g., disabling certain run-time range checks.
-Idir
The -I switch is passed to both p2c and the C compiler, where it will identify places to look for Pascal interface texts or C .h files, respectively.
-v
Enable "verbose" mode. This affects both p2c and the C compiler.
 

ENVIRONMENT

The following environment variables may be used to affect the operation of p2cc.
P2CC_PAT
This variable holds a regular expression for recognizing the names of Pascal files. By default, it recognizes strings which end in .p or .pas.
P2CC_CC
This holds the name of the command to run the C compiler. Default is cc.
P2CC_CCOPTS
This holds additional arguments to be passed to the cc command, before the names of any source files.
P2CC_CCOPTS2
These arguments are passed to the cc command after the names of source files.
P2CC_LIBP2C
This is the name of the libp2c.a file holding p2c runtime routines. Its default is -lp2c, which causes the linker to look for libp2c.a in the usual places for libraries.
P2CC_P2C
This holds the name of the command to run p2c. It is p2c by default.
P2CC_P2COPTS
These are arguments to be passed to p2c on the command line. The default specifies -comp, which set the defaults for various p2c configuration options to be more suitable for compilation rather than translation, and -local, which sets other options to work on the assumption that the output from p2c will be compiled and run on the same type of machine that ran p2c itself.
P2CC_SUFFIX
This is the suffix to use for the names of temporary C source files. The default is ..c, ensuring that p2c will not inadvertently erase .c files in the same directory as the Pascal source files. Note that if the -p2c option is used, the suffix is forced instead to .c since the user has explicitly asked for C source files.
