How To Options

XT -- A Bundle of Program Transformation Tools
The KoalaCompiler components are all tool components that use a standard set of command-line switches to control their operation. Below we describe the common switches. Tool-specific switches are discussed on the corresponding tool description page.

--help By specifying the '--help' switch, a tool component gives a brief list of the switches it accpets. Some times a brief decription of the tool is also displayed.
-i <file> All components consume input. Input is read from standard input or from the file specified with the '-i' switch.
-o <file> Components that have one output (e.g., koala-text , koala-dot ), write their result to standard output or to the file specified with the '-o' switch.
-d <dir> Components with multiple outputs (e.g., koala-c , koala-stc ), store their results in the current working directory or in the directory specified with the '-d' option.
-I <dir> The '-I' switch serves to define a search path where the koala compiler components should look for component, interface, datatype definitions, and for C source files. Multiple '-I' switches can be specified. Only the root of a directory tree needs to be specified with the '-I' switch. Searching will automatically recurse in subdirectories.
--verbose <n> Verbose execution can be controlled with the '--verbose' switch. The number 'n' indicates the level of verbosity.
