simmake - compile a set of Simula programs or separate
simld filelist command [-L=path] [-I=path] [-C=path] [-l]
Simmake reads Simula source-files and analyzes the
dependencies between Simula files (by looking for external
declarations and %include directives). This information can
be used create a Makefile or, as an alterative, simmake can
run simcomp to recompile all files affected by a change.
Simmake understands the information in the attribute files
and can do a better job than make when recompiling files
after a change sice make is only looking at file systems
time-stamps. The possibility to create a makefile is usefull
also to get an overview of dependencies in a system of
separately compiled Simula classes and procedures.
In the simplest case, a set of Simula files in a directory
can be compiled with the single command:
simmake *.sim -c -l
Producing a makefile dependency listing, including needed
files in another directory, say in ../separate:
simmake main.sim -m -L=.. -C=separate
Print commands to be executed rather than actually executing
simmake *.sim -s
Options can appear in any order.
-c Compile the programs which need compilation by calling
-c=<script> Compile programs needing compilation by using
-s Print the commands to compile the programs which need
compilation (using a pessimistic assumption that all
compiles result in updated attribute files).
-s=<script> same as '-s', but use <script> rather than
simcomp for compilation.
-m Produce a Makefile to recompile programs using simcomp.
-m=<script> same as '-m', but use <script> rather than
-L=<dir1>:<dir2>:... directory searchlist, with same meaning
as for simcomp. simmake also interprets the environment
variable SIM_LIBRARY_PATH in the same as simcomp does.
library search list with the same meaning as for
library search list searched before the '-I' list.
Simula files found using this path that needs
compilation are compiled (while files found using the
'-I' list that are assumed to be compiled up to date).
-l include a search of the libraries installed with the
Lund Simula system. Shorthand for: "-
simman simcomp - to compile a Simula program
simman simld - to link compiled Simula modules into an
simman simula - to get overview and pointers to Simula
