PASCAL(1) PASCAL(1) NAME pascal - language interpreter SYNOPSIS pascal [ options ] [ -i name ... ] [ name.p ] [ obj [ argu- ment ... ] ] pmerge name.p ... DESCRIPTION Pascal translates Pascal source programs to interpretable form, executes them, or both. Under option -c the programs are translated but not executed. The translated code appears in file `obj'. Under option -x pascal interprets the previously translated code in file obj (default `obj'). Arguments are made available through the built-ins `argc' and `argv'. Options is a string chosen from the following letters: c Translate only. This option must be first if it appears at all. It is inconsistent with -x. b Buffer the runtime file `output'. l Make a program listing during translation. n List each included file on a new page with a banner line. p Suppress the post-mortem control flow backtrace if an error occurs; override execution limit of 500,000 statements. s Accept standard Pascal only; non-standard constructs cause warning diagnostics. t Suppress runtime tests of subrange variables and treat assert statements as comments. u Card image mode; only the first 72 characters of input lines are used. w Suppress warning diagnostics. x Execute only. If this option appears, it must be first. It is inconsistent with the -c option. z Cause the interpreter to gather profiling data for later analysis by pxp(1). PASCAL(1) PASCAL(1) Option -i causes the named procedures and include files to be listed. Pmerge combines the named source files into a singlesource files on the standard output. FILES *.p input file *.i include file(s) /usr/lib/pi2.0strings error messages /usr/lib/how_pi* basic usage explanation /usr/lib/pascal/* interpreter passes obj interpreter code output /tmp/pix* obj file used by pix pmon.out profile data file SEE ALSO Berkeley Pascal User's Manual (there pascal is called pi, px, and pix) pc(1), pxp(1) DIAGNOSTICS The first character of an error message indicates its class: E Fatal error; no code will be generated. e Non-fatal error. w Warning - a potential problem. s Warning - nonstandard Pascal construct. BUGS The keyword `packed' is recognized but has no effect. Diagnostics relating to the last procedure in an included file may appear after the beginning of the listing of the next. If both source files and arguments are specified, obj is a dummy.
