       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
		   are omitted.

       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.

	      directory for machine-independent #include files.

	      directory for machine-dependent #include files.

	      ANSI C/POSIX library.

       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.
