csc — driver program for the CHICKEN Scheme compiler
csc [OPTION ...] [FILENAME ...]
csc is a program that invokes the CHICKEN compiler and the host systems C compiler to generate an executable from a Scheme source file or C files generated by CHICKEN. FILENAME is a Scheme source file name with optional extension or a C/C++/Objective-C source, object or library file name with extension. OPTION may be one of the following: General options: -h, -help Display usage text and exit. -v, -verbose Show compiler notes and tool-invocations. -vv Display information about translation progress. -vvv Display information about all compilation stages. -version Display Scheme compiler version and exit. -release Display release number and exit. File and pathname options: -o FILENAME, -output-file FILENAME Specifies target executable name. -I PATHNAME, -include-path PATHNAME Specifies alternative path for included files. -to-stdout Write compiler to stdout (implies -t). -s, -shared, -dynamic Generate dynamically loadable shared object file. Language options: -D SYMBOL, -feature SYMBOL Register feature identifier. -no-feature SYMBOL Disable builtin feature identifier. -c++ Compile via a C++ source file (.cpp). -objc Compile via Objective-C source file (.m). Syntax related options: -i, -case-insensitive Don't preserve case of read symbols. -K, -keyword-style STYLE Enable alternative keyword-syntax (prefix, suffix or none). -no-parentheses-synonyms Disables list delimiter synonyms. -no-symbol-escape Disables support for escaped symbols. -r5rs-syntax Disables the CHICKEN extensions to R5RS syntax. -compile-syntax Macros are made available at run-time. -j MODULE, -emit-import-library MODULE Write compile-time module information into separate file. -J, -emit-all-import-libraries Emit import-libraries for all defined modules. -N, -no-module-registration Do not generate module registration code. -no-compiler-syntax Disable expansion of compiler-macros. -m NAME, -module NAME Wrap compiled code in module of the given name. Translation options: -x, -explicit-use Do not use units ‘library’ and ‘eval’ by default. -P, -check-syntax Stop compilation after macro-expansion. -A, -analyze-only Stop compilation after first analysis pass. Debugging options: -w, -no-warnings Disable warnings. -d0, -d1, -d2, -d3, -debug-level NUMBER Set level of available debugging information. -no-trace Disable rudimentary debugging information. -profile Executable emits profiling information. -accumulate-profile Executable emits profiling information in append mode. -profile-name FILENAME Name of the generated profile information file. -types FILENAME Load additional type database. Optimization options: -O, -O0, -O1, -O2, -O3, -O4, -O5, -optimize-level NUMBER Enable certain sets of optimization options. -optimize-leaf-routines Enable leaf routine optimization. -no-usual-integrations Standard procedures may be redefined. -u, -unsafe Disable safety checks. -local Assume globals are only modified in current file. -b, -block Enable block-compilation. -disable-interrupts Disable interrupts in compiled code. -f, -fixnum-arithmetic Assume all numbers are fixnums. -disable-stack-overflow-checks Disables detection of stack-overflows. -inline Enable inlining. -inline-limit LIMIT Set inlining threshold. -inline-global Enable cross-module inlining. -specialize Perform type-based specialization of primitive calls. -oi FILENAME, -emit-inline-file FILENAME Generate file with globally inlinable procedures (implies -inline -local). -consult-inline-file FILENAME Explicitly load inline file. -ot FILENAME, -emit-types-file FILENAME Write type-declaration information into file. -no-argc-checks Disable argument count checks. -no-bound-checks Disable bound variable checks. -no-procedure-checks Disable procedure call checks. -no-procedure-checks-for-usual-bindings Disable procedure call checks only for usual bindings. -no-procedure-checks-for-toplevel-bindings Disable procedure call checks for toplevel bindings. -strict-types Assume variable do not change their type. -clustering Combine groups of local procedures into dispatch loop. -lfa2 Perform additional lightweight flow-analysis pass. Configuration options: -unit NAME Compile file as a library unit. -uses NAME Declare library unit as used. -heap-size NUMBER Specifies heap-size of compiled executable. -nursery NUMBER -stack-size NUMBER Specifies nursery size of compiled executable. -X FILENAME, -extend FILENAME Load file before compilation commences. -prelude EXPRESSION Add expression to beginning of source file. -postlude EXPRESSION Add expression to end of source file. -prologue FILENAME Include file before main source file. -epilogue FILENAME Include file after main source file. -e, -embedded Compile as embedded (don't generate ‘main()’). -gui Compile as GUI application. -link NAME Link extension with compiled executable (implies ‘-uses’). -R NAME, -require-extension NAME Require extension and import in compiled code. -dll, -library Compile multiple units into a dynamic library. -libdir DIRECTORY Override location of runtime library directory. Options to other passes: -C OPTION Pass option to C compiler. -L OPTION Pass option to linker. -I<DIR> Pass “-I<DIR>” to C compiler (add include path). -L<DIR> Pass “-L<DIR>” to linker (add library path). -k Keep intermediate files. -c Stop after compilation to object files. -t Stop after translation to C. -cc COMPILER Select a C compiler other than the default. -cxx COMPILER Select a C++ compiler other than the default. -ld COMPILER Select a linker other than the default. -static-libs Link with static CHICKEN libraries and extensions. -F<DIR> Pass “-F<DIR>” to C compiler (add framework header path on Mac OS X). -framework NAME Passed to linker on Mac OS X. -rpath PATHNAME Add directory to runtime library search path. -Wl,... Pass linker options. -strip Strip resulting binary. Inquiry options: -home Show home-directory (where support files go). -cflags Show required C-compiler flags and exit. -ldflags Show required linker flags and exit. -libs Show required libraries and exit. -cc-name Show name of default C compiler used. -cxx-name Show name of default C++ compiler used. -ld-name Show name of default linker used. -dry-run Just show commands executed, don't run them (implies ‘-v’). Obscure options: -debug MODES Display debugging output for the given modes. -compiler PATHNAME Use a compiler other than the default ‘chicken’. -raw Do not generate implicit init- and exit code. -emit-external-prototypes-first Emit prototypes for callbacks before foreign declarations. -regenerate-import-libraries Always emit import libraries, even when their contents haven't changed. The default behaviour is to preserve existing import libraries. -ignore-repository Do not refer to repository for extensions. -keep-shadowed-macros Do not remove shadowed macros. -host Compile for host when configured for cross-compiling. -private-repository Load extensions from executable path. -deployed Link support file to be used from a deployed executable (sets ‘rpath’ accordingly, if supported on this platform.) -no-elevation Embed manifest on Windows to supress elevation warnings for programs named ‘install’ or ‘setup’. Options can be collapsed if unambiguous, so “-vkfO” is the same as “-v -k -fixnum-arithmetic -optimize”.
The following environment variables change the behaviour of csc: CSC_OPTIONS Can hold default options that should be passed to every invocation of csc.
The csc utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
