       valac - compiler that translates Vala source code into C source and header files


       valac [OPTION]... [FILE]...


       Vala   is   a   programming   language  that  aims  to  bring  modern programming language
       features to GNOME developers without imposing any additional   runtime  requirements   and
       without using  a different  ABI compared to applications and libraries written in C.

       valac, the Vala compiler, is a self-hosting compiler that translates
              Vala source code into C source and header files. It uses the GObject type system to
              create classes and interfaces declared in the Vala source code.

              Enable support for ABI stability
              This changes the  current  behaviour  to  output  public  members  of  classes  and
              interfaces  the  same  order  as  they  appear  in  Vala  source.  For libraries is
              recommended to use --abi-stability to ensure the maintainability of  the  resulting
              Application  Binary  Interface  (ABI).   This  option  is  disabled  by default for
              backward compatibility because it can break ABI of existing projects.
