pcc - APE C compiler driver
pcc [ option ... ] [ name ... ]
Pcc compiles and loads C programs, using APE (ANSI C/POSIX) include files and libraries.
Named files ending with .c are preprocessed with cpp(1), then compiled with one of the
compilers described in 2c(1), as specified by the environment variable $objtype. The
object files are then loaded using one of the loaders described in 2l(1). The options
-o out Place loader output in file out instead of the default 2.out, v.out, etc.
-P Omit the compilation and loading phases; leave the result of preprocessing
name.c in name.i.
-c Omit the loading phase.
-p Insert profiling code into the executable output.
-w Print compiler warning messages.
-B Don't complain about functions used without ANSI function prototypes.
-v Echo the preprocessing, compiling, and loading commands before they are exe-
-Dname Define the name to the preprocessor, as if by If no definition is given, the
name is defined as
-Uname Undefine the name to the preprocessor, as if by
-Idir files whose names do not begin with are always sought first in the directory
of the file argument, then in directories named in -I options, then in /$obj-
-N Don't optimize compiled code.
-S Print an assembly language version of the object code on standard output.
-a Instead of compiling, print on standard output acid functions (see acid(1))
for examining structures declared in the source files.
-aa Like -a except that functions for structures declared in included header files
The APE environment contains all of the include files and library routines specified in
the ANSI C standard (X3.159-1989), as well as those specified in the IEEE Portable Operat-
ing System Interface standard (POSIX, 1003.1-1990, ISO 9945-1). In order to access the
POSIX routines, source programs should define the preprocessor constant _POSIX_SOURCE.

Howard Trickey, ``APE -- The ANSI/POSIX Environment''
The locale manipulation functions are minimal. Signal functions and terminal characteris-
tic handlers are only minimally implemented. Link always fails, because Plan 9 doesn't
support multiple links to a file. The functions related to setting effective user and
group ids cannot be implemented because the concept doesn't exist in Plan 9.
