       flcrun - The Falcon command line execution tool


       falrun [options] [main_script] [script_options]


       The  falrun command line tool is a subset of the falcon(1) command line
       interpreter which only executes pre-compiled falcon scripts  in  ".fam"
       module  files.  This  is meant to launch Falcon based application which
       were compiled on a different system, and whose source is not shipped.


       -e <enc>
              Set given encoding as default for VM  I/O.  Unless  the  scripts
              select  a  different I/O encoding, the streams that are provided
              to the falcon VM (like the output stream for printf) are encoded
              using  the  given  ISO  encoding.  This  overrides  the  default
              encoding that is detected by reading the  environment  settings.
              In  example, if your system uses iso-8859-1 encoding by default,
              but you want your script to read and write utf-8 files, use  the
              option -e utf-8

       -h or -?
              Prints a brief help on stdout and exits.

       -L <path>
              Changes  the default load path. This overrides both the internal
              built in settings  and  the  contents  of  environment  variable
              FALCON_LOAD_PATH. Each directory in the path should be separated
              by ";" and use forward slashes, like this:

                   falrun -L ./;/usr/share/falcon_mod;./myapp

       -p <module>
              Preloads the given module as if  it  were  loaded  by  the  main

       -P     Ignore default load paths and uses only the paths set via the -L

       -v     Prints copyright notice and version and exits.


              Default location of the Falcon Engine loadable module.

              Default directory containing Falcon binary modules.


              Default search path for modules loaded by the scripts.

              Default encoding for the source scripts loaded by  falcon  (when
              different from the system default).

              Default  encoding  for  the  VM I/O streams (when different from
              system default).
