       GAC - The GAP Compiler


          gac [-c|-d] [-o <output>] {-f<option>} <input>...


       GAC   compiles  the  input  files.   Input files  must be GAP  source code (suffix '.g' or
       '.gap'),  C source code (suffix '.c'),  or compiled  code files (suffix '.o').

       If  neither -c  nor -d is given,  then 'gac'  produces
              a  new kernel, which contains the compiled code for all the input files.

       -c     Compiles the input files to statically loadable object files, which must be  linked
              together to a new kernel.

       -d     Compiles  the input files to dynamically loadable object files, which can be loaded
              by a kernel at runtime.

       -C     Only compiles the input files to C code, which will require compilation and linking
              to be usable.

       -r     Statically  compiled files will be assumed to be given by pathnames relative to the
              GAP root, and will be compiled for automatic loading when files are sought relative
              to the GAP root.

       -o <output>
              Name the output file <output>.

              Emit   code  for   arithmetic  operations,  which works faster if both operands are
              small integers  and slower otherwise.

              Emit code for list access, which works faster if the  list  is  a  plain  list  and
              slower otherwise.

              Inline  the functions 'Add' and 'Length' the code, which makes it a bit faster.

              Emit   no error checks  for list access, which makes it faster but may dump core if
              an error happens.

       -p <option>
              Pass the option  <option> to  the C compiler.

       -P <option>
              Pass the option  <option> to  the C linker.
