       falconeer.fal - Falcon skeleton module startup configurator script


       falconeer.fal -n moduleName [options]


       The  falconeer.fal  script configures a directory containing the Falcon Skeleton Module so
       that it becomes ready for compilation under all the systems supported by Falcon.

       Although not mandatory, a developer willing to write native modules  for  Falcon  may  use
       this facility to speed up the startup phase and begin with an already compilable module.

       The  configuration  consists  in  the  renaming  of  the module files into the module name
       specified in the command line, and in the  update  of  the  makefiles  and  project  files
       provided for the various development platform Falcon can be built on.

       Other  than  the  project  name,  the  script allows to configure other options, that will
       affect the template variables that will be substituted in the modified files.

       Once configured and built, the skeleton module provides already a skeleton()  symbol  that
       is  exported  to  the  VM,  and  a  service  that  exports  that  function (defined in the
       fskelmod_mod.cpp file) to C++ applications.


       -a <author>
              Specifies the author name.

       -c "<copyright owner>"
              Indicates the copyright owner, if different from the  author,  to  be  set  on  the
              copyright line, right beside the copyright year.

       -d <Description>
              Sets a brief description of the project.

       -l <File>
              Loads  a  license  plate  (a  long statement indicating the license under which the
              files are distributed) from a template  file.  If  not  given,  the  standard  FPLL
              license plate is applied to the generated files.

       -n <name>
              Sets  the  (short)  name  of the project. Files will be renamed accordingly to this
              value, and also the final module name will be configured using this setting.

       -p <name>
              Sets the main project hood under which the file is created.  Usually,  modules  are
              part  of  wider  projects, or can be distributed as sets. If not set, the text "The
              Falcon Programming Language" will be used instead.


       The file version.h cannot currently be properly configured. Edit it by hand.


       On some systems, falconeer.fal script can be "proxied" with  a  falconeer  pseudo  command
       (shell script, batch file and so on).
