PCC(1) PCC(1) NAME pcc - APE C compiler driver SYNOPSIS pcc [ option ... ] [ name ... ] DESCRIPTION Pcc compiles and loads C programs, using APE (ANSI C/POSIX) include files and libraries. Named files ending with .c are preprocessed with cpp(1), then compiled with one of the com- pilers described in 8c(1), as specified by the environment variable $objtype. The object files are then loaded using one of the loaders described in 8l(1). The options are: -+ Accept C++ // comments. -o out Place loader output in file out instead of the default 8.out, v.out, etc. -P Omit the compilation and loading phases; leave the result of preprocessing name.c in name.i. -E Like -P, but send the result to standard output. -c Omit the loading phase. -p Insert profiling code into the executable output. -w Print compiler warning messages. -W Print all the messages that -w would print as warn- ings, but make them errors. -llib Include /$objtype/lib/ape/liblib.a as a library dur- ing the linking phase. -B Don't complain about functions used without ANSI function prototypes. -V Enable void* conversion warnings, as in 8c(1). -v Echo the preprocessing, compiling, and loading com- mands before they are executed. -x file Produce an export file in the executable, as described in 8l(1). -Dname=def -Dname Define the name to the preprocessor, as if by `#define'. If no definition is given, the name is PCC(1) PCC(1) defined as `1'. -Uname Undefine the name to the preprocessor, as if by `#undef'. -Idir `#include' files whose names do not begin with `/' are always sought first in the directory of the file argument, then in directories named in -I options, then in /$objtype/include/ape. -N Don't optimize compiled code. -S Print an assembly language version of the object code on standard output. -T Pass type signatures on all external and global entities. The signature is based on the C signof operator. See dynld(2). -a Instead of compiling, print on standard output acid functions (see acid(1)) for examining structures declared in the source files. -aa Like -a except that functions for structures declared in included header files are omitted. -F Enable vararg type checking as described in 8c(1). This is of limited use without the appropriate #pragma definitions. -f (ARM only) Generate VFP hardware floating point instructions. The APE environment contains all of the include files and library routines specified in the ANSI C standard (X3.159- 1989), as well as those specified in the IEEE Portable Oper- ating System Interface standard (POSIX, 1003.1-1990, ISO 9945-1). In order to access the POSIX routines, source pro- grams should define the preprocessor constant _POSIX_SOURCE. FILES /sys/include/ape directory for machine-independent #include files. /$objtype/include/ape directory for machine-dependent #include files. /$objtype/lib/ape/libap.a ANSI C/POSIX library.

Signal func- tions and terminal characteristic handlers are only mini- mally implemented. Link always fails, because Plan 9 doesn't support multiple links to a file. The functions related to setting effective user and group ids cannot be implemented because the concept doesn't exist in Plan 9.
