kuipc - the CERN KUIP compiler
kuipc [ options ] [ inputfile [ outputfile ] ]
kuipc, the Kit for a User Interface Package Compiler, is a tool to
simplify the writing of a program's user interface code. It takes as
input a Command Definition File (CDF) that describes the commands to be
understood by the program, and outputs C or FORTRAN code that makes the
appropriate function calls to set up the user interface. This code can
then be compiled and linked with the rest of the program. Since the
generated code uses KUIP routines, the program must also be linked
against the Packlib library that contains them.
If no output file is specified, kuipc will output generated code to a
file whose name is the same as the input file's, with the ending '.cdf'
replaced by '.f' or '.c' as appropriate. If neither input nor output
file are given, kuipc will prompt for them. Be careful because kuipc
overwrites existing files with no warning.
-c Generate C code.
-f Generate FORTRAN code (the default).
-split Output several files, one for each time the >Name control line
is used in the CDF input. The names of the output files will
correspond to the arguments given on the >Name control lines.

When the -split option is used, kuipc will still create an output file
that it would have made if -split was not used; the file will be of
