SYNOPSIS

pike [ -driver-options ... ] [ script [ script-arguments ... ] ]

DESCRIPTION

Compiler and interpreter for the Pike programming language.

OPTIONS

The following options are supported by the loader:
-a Increase the debug level of the peep-hole optimizer with 1 (debug).
-anum Set the debug level of the peep-hole optimizer to num (debug).
-Dsymbol
  Define the preprocessor symbol symbol to 1.
-Dsymbol=value
  Define the preprocessor symbol symbol to value.
-d Increase the debug level with 1 (debug).
-dnum Set the debug level to num (debug).
-dc Increase the debug level of the Pike compiler (debug).
-dg Resets the debug malloc at every garbage collection (debug).
-dL Windows only: Enable Windows error dialogs when dll files cannot be loaded.

It is common that Pike has modules which are linked to dll files that are not available in all installations. Therefore these error dialogs are disabled by default so that Pike does not hang on them when attempting to load certain modules.

However, the error dialogs are the only way to see which dll’s that could not be loaded, so this option may be necessary to find out why a certain module does not load.

-dp Turns off the peep hole optimization (debug).
-ds Debug signals (debug).
-dt Turn off tail recursion optimization (debug).
-dT Enable extra checks in the thread library, e.g. mutex sanity checks (debug).
-l Increase the debug level of the global optimizer with 1 (debug).
-lnum Set the debug level of the global optimizer to num (debug).
-mmaster_program
  Use master_program instead of the ordinary master program.
-qnum End execution after executing num Pike instructions.
-snum Set Pike stack size to num (minimum is 256).
-t Increase the level of runtime trace with 1 (debug).
-tnum Set the level of runtime trace to num (debug).
-tg Log the gc runs to stderr.
-p Increase the level of profiling with 1 (debug).
-pnum Set the level of profiling to num (debug).
-rt Turn on runtime checking of arguments to function calls, and soft casts.
-rT Turn on #pragma strict_types for all files.
The following options are supported by the default master program:
-h, --help,
  Print help message and exit.
-eexpr,--execute=expr
  Execute expr and exit.
-xtoolname
  Execute internal tool toolname from Tools.Standalone. Omit toolname for a list of available tools.
-E, --preprocess
  Just run the preprocessor.
-Idir,--include-path=dir
  Append dir to the include path.
-Mdir,--modue-path=dir
  Append dir to the module path.
-Pdir,--program-path=dir
  Append dir to the program path.
-v, --version
  Print version of Pike and exit.
-Vmajor.minor,--compat=major.minor
  Set the compatibility version to Pike version major.minor.
-w, --warnings
  Enable warnings.
-W, --woff, --no-warnings
  Disable warnings.
--assembler-debug
  Set the peephole optimizer debug level (debug).
--autoreload
  Turn on the autoreload mode of the master.
--compiler-trace
  Turn on tracing of the Pike compiler (debug).
--debug Increase or set the debug level (debug).
--debug-without=feature
  Hide feature from the resolver (debug).
--dumpversion
  Print the Pike version number to stderr, e.g. "7.8.10\n"
--features
  List some of the features that are enabled in this Pike binary and exit (debug).
--info Show various information about this Pike installation and exit (debug).
--optimizer-debug
  Set the global optimizer debug level (debug).
--show-all-cpp-warnings, --picky-cpp
  Enable warnings for failing #if constant() expressions.
--show-paths
  Show the paths pike will use and exit (debug).
--trace Increase the trace level (debug).
--trace=num
  Set the trace level to num (debug).

OPERANDS

The following operand is supported:
script A path to a script written in Pike to be compiled and then executed. Everything on the commandline after the script is passed as arguments to the main() function in the script.
If no script is specified, pike will start in interactive- (Hilfe) mode.

REGISTRY KEYS

On Windows, Pike is affected by the following keys in the registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Pike\7.8\PIKE_MASTER HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Pike\7.8\PIKE_MASTER

Specifies the name of the master program (overridden by -m). If these keys are not set (the default), then Pike finds the master by relative path from pike.exe.

ENVIRONMENT

Pike is affected by the following environment variables:
PIKE_MASTER
  Specifies the name of the master program (overridden by -m).
Depending on operating system Pike may be affected by the following environment variables:
LC_ALL Overrides the other LC_* variables.
LC_COLLATE
  Specifies the character collation sequence.
LC_CTYPE
  Specifies the character classification.
LC_MESSAGES
  Specifies the language of the system messagedatabase.
LC_NUMERIC
  Specifies the decimal and thousand delimiters.
LC_TIME
  Specifies the date and time formats.
The default master program is affected by the following environment variables:
PIKE_INCLUDE_PATH
  List of directories separated with colon (:), to search for include-files.
PIKE_PROGRAM_PATH
  List of directories separated with colon (:), to search for program-files.
PIKE_MODULE_PATH
  List of directories separated with colon (:), to search for modules.
LONG_PIKE_ERRORS
  If set disables truncation of paths in backtraces.
SHORT_PIKE_ERRORS
  If set and LONG_PIKE_ERRORS is not set, truncates paths to just the filename in backtraces.
PIKE_BACKTRACE_LEN
  The maximum number of elements in arrays to describe in backtraces.
Note that the above environment variables have effect before the default master program attempts to load the Getopt(3P) module, which occurrs before the master program arguments are parsed.

EXIT STATUS

The following exit values are returned:
0 Successfull completion.
>0 An error occurred. See output on stderr (fd #2) for reason.
