Options

The parameters supported are:

-name packageName
This parameter specifies the name of the package. It is required.

-load filespec

If the list of procedures is empty or omitted, ::pkg::create will set up the library for direct loading (see pkg_mkIndex). Any number of -load parameters may be specified.
