ecppc - compiler for ecpp
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
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
- -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.
- -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
- 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.
