NAME

       valac - compiler that translates Vala source code into C source and header files

SYNOPSIS

       valac [OPTION]... [FILE]...

DESCRIPTION

       Vala   is   a   new   programming   language   that   aims   to  bring  modern programming
       language  features  to  GNOME  developers  without  imposing   any   additional    runtime
       requirements   and  without using  a different  ABI compared to applications and libraries
       written in C.

       valac, the Vala compiler, is a self-hosting compiler that translates Vala source code into
       C  source  and  header  files.  It  uses  the  GObject  type  system to create classes and
       interfaces declared in the Vala source code.
