ecppc is the compiler for the ecpp-language.
ecpp is a template language, which lets the user embed C++-code into HTML for use in tntnet(8).
ecppc generates a C++-class from a ecpp template. It can also compile binary data into a C++-class, which makes it possible to integrate them in a tntnet application.
This enables binary-mode. Ecppc does not look for ecpp-tags, but creates a
class, which just copies the data
This enables multi-binary-mode. Every binary-file has some overhead, when
packed into a tntnet-application. This overhead can be quite significant, when
binary-files are small, like small icons in a web application. To reduce this
overhead, multiple binaries can be packed into a single class, which removes
the per-binary overhead completely.
When the component is called, it uses the path-info-parameter
(request.getPathInfo()) from the request, to decide, which binary to send. If
no filename matches the path-info, processing is declined. The binaries need
not be of same mime-type, since the mime-type is looked automatically from the
mime-database by file- extension of the source-file.
- -i filename
In multi binary mode (option
-bb) filenames can be read from the file
specified with this option. This can be useful when the command line gets too
long or just for convenience.
- -I dir
Search include-files in directory. This option can be passed multiple times.
All specified directories are searched in turn for include-files.
- -l log-category
Set log category. Default is component.componentname.
Disable generation of #line-directives
- -m mimetype
Set mimetype of output. This is the mimetype, sent by the component to the
browser in the Content-Type- header. Without this parameter the mimetype is
looked up from the mime-database of your system using the file-extension of
- --mimetypes file
Read mimetypes from file (default: /etc/mime.types).
This disables normal processing and prints just the ecpp-dependencies from
this component. The output can be included into a Makefile. Ecpp-dependencies
are introduces by the <%include>-tag.
- -C, --cmake
Prints ecpp dependencies in a syntax, which
- -n name
Set the name of the component. Normally this is derived from the
source-file-name by removing the path and .ecpp-extension.
- -o filename
Write the generated file to the specified file instead of deriving the
filename from the source-file-name. The outputfilename is normally the
source-file where the extension is replaced by .cpp.
Keep path name when deriving name of component from input file name.
Generate singleton. Normally ecppc decides automatically, if the template is
suitable for a singleton. This option force ecppc to generate a singleton.
Do not generate a singleton.
Enable verbose mode. This prints additional information about the processing
on the standard-output.
Compress the data in the component. Compressed data is automatically
decopressed on first use. This reduces the code-size, but slightly slows down
the first call of the component.
