       ecppc - compiler for ecpp


       ecppc   [-bhszvtM]   [-s-]   [-o  filename]  [-n  name]  [-m  mimetype]
       [--mimetypes filename] [-I dir] filename
       ecppc -bb filename...


       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
       tntnet (8).  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.


       -b     This enables binary-mode.  Ecppc does not  look  for  ecpp-tags,
              but creates a class, which just copies the data

       -bb    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.

       -h     Generate  a  separate  header-file.   Without  this  option, the
              class-declaration and -definition are put  both  into  a  single

       -I dir Search  include-files  in  directory.  This option can be passed
              multiple times.  All specified directories are searched in  turn
              for include-files.

       -L     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).

       -M     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

       -n name
              Set  the  classname  of the component.  Normally this is derived
              from the source-file-name by removing the .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.

       -s     Generate  singleton.   Normally  ecppc decides automatically, if
              the template is suitable for a  singleton.   This  option  force
              ecppc to generate a singleton.

       -s-    Do not generate a singleton.

       -v     Enable  verbose  mode.  This prints additional information about
              the processing on the standard-output.

       -z     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.
