compiler for ecpp(7)


ecppc [-bhszvtM] [-s-] [-o filename]  [-n name] [-m mimetype] [--mimetypes filename] [-I dir] [-l log-category] filename

ecppc -bb filename ...

ecppc [OPTION]


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
 the source-file.

--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 cmake understands.

-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.

-V,  --version
