NAME

       capnp - compiler for Cap'n Proto data interchange format definition files

SYNOPSIS

       capnp [<options>] <command> [<args>]

       capnp id

       capnp [--help | --version]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the capnp command.

       It was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a
       manual page.

       capnp is wrapper for various tools used to manipulate the Cap'n Proto data interchange
       format. These tools include a definition file compiler, a C++ backend, a decoder for
       converting Cap'n Proto messages to text and a generator for Cap'n Proto definition IDs.

OPTIONS

       The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two
       dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

       -IDIR, --import-pathDIR
           Add DIR to the list of directories searched for non-relative imports (ones that start
           with a '/').

       --no-standard-import
           Do not add any default import paths; use only those specified by -I. Otherwise,
           typically /usr/include and /usr/local/include are added by default.

       --verbose
           Log informational messages to stderr; useful for debugging.

       --help
           Show summary of options.

       --version
           Show version of program.

COMMANDS

   compile
       Compile Cap'n Proto schema files & generate corresponding source code in one or more
       languages.

       OPTIONS
           -I<dir>, --import-path=<dir>
               Add <dir> to the list of directories searched for non-relative imports (ones that
               start with a '/').

           --no-standard-import
               Do not add any default import paths; use only those specified by -I. Otherwise,
               typically /usr/include and /usr/local/include are added by default.

           -olang[:dir], --output=lang[:dir]
               Generate source code for language <lang> in directory <dir> (default: current
               directory). <lang> actually specifies a plugin to use. If <lang> is a simple word,
               the compiler for a plugin called 'capnpc-<lang>' in $PATH. If <lang> is a file
               path containing slashes, it is interpreted as the exact plugin executable file
               name, and $PATH is not searched.

           --src-prefix=<prefix>
               If a file specified for compilation starts with <prefix>, remove the prefix for
               the purpose of deciding the names of output files. For example, the following
               command: capnp --src-prefix=foo/bar -oc++:corge foo/bar/baz/qux.capnp would
               generate the files corge/baz/qux.capnp.{h,c++}.

   decode
       Decodes one or more encoded Cap'n Proto messages as text. Messages are read from standard
       input and by default are expected to be in standard Cap'n Proto serialization format.

       OPTIONS
           -I<dir>, --import-path=<dir>
               Add <dir> to the list of directories searched for non-relative imports (ones that
               start with a '/').

           -f, --flat
               Interpret the input as one large single-segment message rather than a stream in
               standard serialization format.

           --no-standard-import
               Do not add any default import paths; use only those specified by -I. Otherwise,
               typically /usr/include and /usr/local/include are added by default.

           -p, --packed
               Expect the input to be packed using standard Cap'n Proto packing, which deflates
               zero-valued bytes.

           --short
               Print in short (non-pretty) format. Each message will be printed on one line,
               without using whitespace to improve readability.

   id
       Generates a unique identifier for Cap'n Proto schema files.
