       ikvmc - compile java classes and jars into CIL assemblies


       ikvmc [ -options ] class | jar ...


       IKVM   is   an  implentation  of  the  Java  for  the  Common  Language
       Infrastructure  (CLI)  runtime.   It   includes   a   byte   code   JIT
       compiler/verifier  to translate Java byte code to CIL and GNU Classpath
       to provide the Java class libraries.  ikvmc allows statically compiling
       of  Java  bytecodes  in Java classes and jars into CIL assemblies.  The
       ikvm(1) program provides dynamic compilation to CIL and execution.

       The Java class or jar parameters may be file globs such as *.class  and
       used  to process multiple sources in one step.  Duplicates specified in
       processing will be ignored, with a warning given.


              Set system property name to value at runtime.

              Apply MTAThreadAttribute to the main class.

              Don’t apply STAThreadAttribute to the main class.

              (default) Apply STAThreadAttribute to the main class.

              Specify the generated assembly name  to  assembly-name  If  this
              option  is  omitted,  the  assembly  name  is usually the output

       -da[:packagename ... | :classname]
              Set the system property to disable assertions.

       -debug Generate debugging info in the output file.  Only useful if  the
              source class files contained debug information, such as compiled
              with the javac -g option.

       -disableassertions[:packagename ... | :classname]
              Set the system property to disable assertions.

       -ea[:packagename ... | :classname]
              Set the system property to enable assertions.

       -enableassertions[:packagename ... | :classname]
              Set the system property to enable assertions.

              Use the list of classes in filename to exclude from compiling.

              Use the key in the container keycontainer to sign the  assembly.

              Use the key in file keyfilename to sign the assembly.

              Specify  the  main  method  class  mainclass  contains  the main
              method.  If omitted and the target is an executable, a search is
              done  for  a  qualifying  main method and ikvmc reports if it is

              Do not glob the class or jar arguments.

       -nojni Do not generate a JNI stub for native methods.

              Do not create metadata to emit rich stack traces.

              Remove unused private fields.

              Set the output filename to outputfile.  The extension used  here
              must match the -target used.  For a library, it must end in .dll
              and for an exe or winexe, it must end in .exe.  If  this  option
              is  omitted,  an  output name will be chosen based on the target
              type and the name of the input files.  If the input  files  were
              given with globs, this option must be used.

              Process  all  files  and directories matching filespec which can
              use globbing.


              Reference an assembly library-filespec  used  from  Java.   This
              option can be used multiple times and globbing is allowed.

              Include a Java resource named name in file path.

              Set the location of source code for debugging to path.  The name
              of a package is appended to the path to find the file.




              Set the generated target type to  either  a  console  executable
              (exe)  generating  a  result.exe, library (library) generating a
              result.dll, windows executable  for  GUI  applications  (winexe)
              generating a result.exe or module for use by the linker (module)
              generating a result.netmodule.  winexe is only used on  Windows.

              Build tracing into the specified output method method-name.

              Displays all tracepoints with the given name name.

              Set the assembly version to M.m.b.r.
