       ecppc - compiler	for ecpp(7)

       ecppc  [-bhszvtM] [-s-] [-o filename]  [-n name]	[-m mimetype] [--mime-
       types filename] [-I dir]	[-l log-category] filename

       ecppc -bb filename ...

       ecppc is	the compiler for the ecpp-language. ecpp is  a	template  lan-
       guage, which lets the user embed	C++-code  into HTML  for  use  in tnt-
       net(8).	ecppc generates	a C++-class from a ecpp	template. It can  also
       compile	binary data into a C++-class, which makes it possible to inte-
       grate them in a tntnet application.

       -b     This enables binary-mode.	Ecppc does not look for	ecpp-tags, but
	      creates a	class, which just copies the data

       -bb    This enables multi-binary-mode. Every binary-file	has some over-
	      head, when packed	into a tntnet-application. This	 overhead  can
	      be  quite	 significant,  when binary-files are small, like small
	      icons in a web application. To reduce  this  overhead,  multiple
	      binaries	can  be	 packed	into a single class, which removes the
	      per-binary overhead completely.

	      When the component is called, it	uses  the  path-info-parameter
	      (request.getPathInfo())  from  the request, to decide, which bi-
	      nary to send. If no filename matches the	path-info,  processing
	      is  declined.  The binaries need not be of same mime-type, since
	      the mime-type is looked automatically from the mime-database  by
	      file- extension of the source-file.

       -i filename
	      In multi binary mode (option -bb)	filenames can be read from the
	      file specified with this option. This can	 be  useful  when  the
	      command line gets	too long or just for convenience.

       -I dir Search  include-files  in	 directory.  This option can be	passed
	      multiple times.  All specified directories are searched in  turn
	      for include-files.

       -l log-category
	      Set log category.	Default	is component.componentname.

       -L     Disable generation of #line-directives

       -m mimetype
	      Set mimetype of output. This is the mimetype, sent by the	compo-
	      nent to the browser in the Content-Type-	header.	 Without  this
	      parameter	 the  mimetype	is looked up from the mime-database of
	      your system using	the file-extension of the source-file.

       --mimetypes file
	      Read mimetypes from file (default: /etc/mime.types).

       -M     This disables normal processing and prints just the  ecpp-depen-
	      dencies  from  this component. The output	can be included	into a
	      Makefile.	 Ecpp-dependencies  are	 introduces   by   the	 <%in-

       -n name
	      Set the name of the component. Normally this is derived from the
	      source-file-name by removing the path and	.ecpp-extension.

       -o filename
	      Write the	generated file to the specified	file instead of	deriv-
	      ing  the filename	from the source-file-name.  The	outputfilename
	      is normally the source-file where	the extension is  replaced  by

       -p     Keep  path  name when deriving name of component from input file

       -s     Generate singleton. Normally ecppc decides automatically,	if the
	      template	is  suitable for a singleton.  This option force ecppc
	      to generate a singleton.

       -s-    Do not generate a	singleton.

       -v     Enable verbose mode. This	prints	additional  information	 about
	      the processing on	the standard-output.

       -z     Compress the data	in the component. Compressed data is automati-
	      cally decopressed	on first use. This reduces the code-size,  but
	      slightly slows down the first call of the	component.
