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
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
-L Disable generation of #line-directives
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.
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
Set the classname of the component. Normally this is derived
from the source-file-name by removing the .ecpp-extension.
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.
