SYNOPSIS

/usr/local/bin/arena [ options ] script [ script options ]

DESCRIPTION

The arena program is an interpreter for the Arena scripting language. It uses the first non-option argument as the script file to interpret and passes all following command line options to the script.

Option processing can be aborted by using the special option --. The next command line argument will be taken as the script to execute even if it matches a regular interpreter option.

OPTIONS

-h or --help
  Display a short option summary.
-V or --version
  Display the version number of the interpreter.
-c or --check
  Perform only syntax checking. The script will be read and parsed by the interpreter. Syntax errors will be reported, but the script is not executed on a successful parse.
-d or --dump
  Dump script contents on standard output. The script will be read an parsed by the interpreter, but not executed. Instead, the interpreter prints out its internal parse tree of the script, converted back into Arena source code. Comments from the input script may be missing, and some language constructs may be expanded to a different form.

This option is intended for debugging the interpreter itself, in the case that it misinterprets a script.

DIAGNOSTICS

If a syntax or runtime error occurs, the exit status of the interpreter is 1 and a diagnostic message is printed on standard error.

If no syntax or runtime error occurs, the exit status of the interpreter is that of the script executed. Note that some debugging options of the interpreter itself will preclude the script from running. In that case the exit status is 0.
