       thrift  - code generator/compiler for Thrift IDL


       thrift [options] source_file


       Thrift  is  a framework for efficient serialization and RPC services.  The thrift compiler
       accepts a source file containing definitions of Thrift structs and services, and generates
       the language-specific code to implement them.


           print the compiler version and exit

       -o DIRECTORY
           Set the output directory for gen-* packages (default: current directory)

       -out DIRECTORY
           Set the ouput location for generated files. (no gen-* folder will be created)

           Add a directory to the list of directories searched for include directives

           Suppress all compiler warnings (BAD!)

           Strict compiler warnings on

           Verbose mode

           Also generate included files

           Parse debug trace to stdout

       --gen STRING
           Generate   code   with   a  dynamically-registered  generator.  STRING  has  the  form
           language[:key1=val1[,key2,[key3=val3]]].  Keys and values are options  passed  to  the
           generator.   Many  options  will not require values.  For a complete list of supported
           generators, run thrift without arguments.
