mbsc - the MBS compiler for varkon
VARKON is a high level development tool for applications in the area of
Engineering, Computer Aided Design and Product Modelling.
The MBS compiler reads source lines frome MBS-files and produces binary
modules in MBO-files.
source the name of one or more sourcefiles
-v report current version information and exit
-l create listfile
-wn use linewidth of n characters in listfile
-hn write n lines per page to listfile
-sn set module protection code to n
-pmn set PMSIZE to n bytes
FILES AND ENVIRONMENT
mbsc needs the following environment parameter to be set up in order to
function properly. If not defined a default value is used instead.
VARKON_ERM = /usr/share/varkon/erm
Due to a bug the compiler will not report if the size of PM (PMSIZE) is
too small to hold the entire module. Instead it truncates the module
and writes it to disc without notice.
The VARKON system was originally developed by a group at the University
of Linkoping in Sweden during 1984-86 under the leadership of Dr. Johan
Kjellander now the president of Microform AB. Since then the system has
been owned, marketed and further developed by Microform AB.
Subsequently the license was changed to GNU General Public License and
VARKON was taken over by the CAD research group of the Örebro
University in Sweden.
