NAME

box — A language to create figures and graphics.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

box [-l library ] {-st | source.box }

This is the typical minimal syntax; see below for a list
and explanation of the other options.

DESCRIPTION

box compiles a box source file
(to bytecode) and executes it. It can read the source from the standard
input (with -st) or from the specified file.

OPTIONS

A summary of options is included below:
-h Show summary of options.
-st | source.box The user MUST provide either a source file or the option
-st. In the latter case the source is read
from the standard input.
-l library Link against the provided C library, before trying to execute
the compiled code. When specifying ‘‘-l g’’,
the library ‘‘libg.so’’ (or ‘‘libg.dylib’’) is searched, instead.
-L path Add an additional path to be considered when searching for
the libraries specified with the -l option.
The option can be used more than once to specify more than one
path. The last occurrence has the precedence on the formers and
has precedence on the paths specified in the environmental
variable ‘‘BOX_LIBRARY_PATH’’.
-I path Add an additional path to be considered when searching for
the file included with ‘‘include "file"’’. This option can be used
more than once to specity more than one path. The last occurrence
has the precedence on the formers and on the paths specified with
the ‘‘BOX_INCLUDE_PATH’’ environmental variable.
When using ‘‘include "file"’’ in your programs, the files
‘‘file.bxh‘‘ and ‘‘file‘‘ are searched (in this precise order).
-o outfile, -w outfile Write to outfile a human readable
representation of the bytecode produced from the given box
source (useful for debugging). Use -w if you want
to overwrite existing files, otherwise use -o.
-se setupfile Include automatically the file
setupfile before processing any
other line of source.
-t Compile only. The compiled code will not be linked
and executed.
-f Force execution, even when warning messages
were displayed.
-v Verbose message reports.
-e Only error messages are reported (no warnings).
-si Make the Box compiler totally silent.

ENVIRONMENT

These are the environmental variables used by Box:
BOX_LIBRARY_PATH Add additional search paths for Box libraries.
The format is the same as the shell’s $PATH: one or more directory
pathnames separated by colons. See option -L.
BOX_INCLUDE_PATH Add additional search paths for Box header files.
The format is the same as the shell’s $PATH: one or more directory
pathnames separated by colons. See option -I.
BOX_DEFAULT_LIBS A list of libraries which should be always used for linking.
The format is the same as the shell’s $PATH: one or more library
names separated by colons.
