       omniidl - omniORB idl compiler


       omniidl [options] -b<back-end> [back-end options] file


       omniidl  is  the omniORB IDL compiler front end. If a back-end is not specified, it checks
       the input IDL file for validity, and produces no output. Usually, a language mapping back-
       end is specified, so stubs and skeletons in the target language are produced.

       The  input  files  are  processed  by  the  C  preprocessor  before they are parsed by the


       -b<backend>    Run the specified back-end (e.g., -bcxx = C++, -bpython = Python)

                      Define <name> for the C preprocessor.

       -U<name>       Undefine <name> for the C preprocessor.

       -I<dir>        Include <dir> in the C preprocessor search path.

       -E             Only run the C preprocessor, sending its output to stdout.

       -Y<cmd>        Use <cmd> as the preprocessor instead of the default.

       -N             Do not run the C preprocessor.

       -Wp<arg>       Send <arg> to the C preprocessor.

       -Wb<arg>       Send <arg> to the back-end.

       -nf            Do not warn about unresolved forward declarations.

       -k             Keep comments after declarations, to be used by some back-ends.

       -K             Keep comments before declarations, to be used by some back-ends.

       -C<dir>        Change directory to <dir> before writing output files.

       -d             Dump the parsed IDL then exit, without running a back-end.

       -p<dir>        Use <dir> as a path to find omniidl back-ends.

       -V             Print version information then exit.

       -u             Print usage information.

       -v             Verbose: trace compilation stages.


       Choose the C++ back-end with -bcxx.  The C++ back-end is  only  available  when  you  have
       omniORB for C++ installed.

       The  C++ back-end produces two output files: a header and a stub/skeleton file. By default
       they are named by appending suffixes .hh and to the base name of the input IDL file.

       If the -Wba option is specified, then a third  file  is  generated  (with  default  suffix ), containing code for TypeCode and Any.


       -Wbh=<suffix>  Use <suffix> instead of .hh

       -Wbs=<suffix>  Use <suffix> instead of

       -Wbd=<suffix>  Use  <suffix> instead of If the same suffix is specified for -Wbs
                      and -Wbd then a single skeleton file  containing  all  the  definitions  is

       -Wba           Generate definitions for TypeCode and Any.

       -Wbinline      Output stubs for #included IDL files in line with the main file.

       -Wbtp          Generate tie implementation skeletons.

       -Wbtf          Generate flattened tie implementation skeletons.

                      Splice together multiply-opened modules into one.

       -Wbexample     Generate example implementation code.

       -WbBOA         Generate BOA compatible skeletons.

                      Preserve IDL #include paths in generated #include directives.

       -Wbuse_quotes  Use quotes in #include directives (e.g. "foo" rather than <foo>).


       Choose  the  Python  back-end with -bpython.  The Python back-end produces Python packages
       according to the standard IDL to Python mapping, to be used  with  omniORBpy.  The  Python
       back-end is only available when you have omniORBpy installed.

       The  Python back-end generates Python package directories named after the modules declared
       in IDL, as required by the IDL to Python mapping. It also creates separate stub files that
       are imported by the packages.


       -Wbinline      Output stubs for #included IDL files in line with the main file.

                      Use <name> as the name for the global IDL scope (default _GlobalIDL).

                      Put both Python modules and stub files in package <name>.

                      Put Python modules in package <name>

                      Put stub files in package <name>
