       This manual page documents briefly the styx, stypp, stydoc, ctoh,  lim_test  and  pim_test
       commands.   It  was  written  for  the  Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original
       programs don't have manual pages, but have documentation in HTML format (see below).

       styx translates token and syntax descriptions contained in $SPESTYX/language.sty  yielding
       scanner  and  parser  tables  as well as a functional interface to the abstract derivation

       stypp is sort of a ``pretty printer'' for source files written in a styx-defined language.
       Furthermore it can be used to port source files, provided source and target languages have
       equivalent abstract syntax.

       stydoc generates HTML reference documentation for a grammar specified in grammarfile using
       a template.

       ctoh is used to create header files from C sources generated by styx. It is taken from the
       upstream author's own project development environment where source files are written in  a
       manner allowing interface definitions to be automatically generated.

       ptm_img  translates  a  source file specified by the FileName option to a binary image. If
       the FileName option is omitted, the image file must  exist  and  the  program  writes  the
       derivation tree to stdout.

       lim_test uses a scanner image file for language to scan the source in filename writing the
       token stream to stdout.

       pim_test uses scanner and parser image files for language to parse the source in  filename
       writing the derivation tree to stdout.


       Upstream  authors  use  non-standard  conventions for command-line options and environment
       variables, to the effect that the latter are best viewed as options which default  to  the
       value of the identically named environment variable if not specified.

       For  styx,  SPESTYX is the search path for language specifications (language.sty), scanner
       and parser image files are located using BINSTYX while the location of generated C code is
       determined by GENSTYX.

       stypp,  stydoc,  ptm_img,  lim_test  and pim_test use BINSTYX to locate scanner and parser
       image files language.lim and language.pim.


       The  programs  are  documented  fully  in  The  Styx  Handbook  available  in  the  source
       distribution in LinuxDoc and HTML format. On Debian GNU/Linux systems the documentation is
       contained in the styx-doc package.
