NAME
       valac  -	 compiler  that	 translates Vala source	code into C source and
       header files

SYNOPSIS
       valac [OPTION]... [FILE]...

DESCRIPTION
       Vala  is	 a  programming	 language  that	 aims  to  bring  modern  pro-
       gramming	language features to GNOME developers without imposing any ad-
       ditional	 runtime requirements  and  without using   a  different   ABI
       compared	to applications	and libraries written in C.

       valac, the Vala compiler, is a self-hosting compiler that translates
	      Vala  source  code  into	C source and header files. It uses the
	      GObject type system to create classes and	interfaces declared in
	      the Vala source code.

   Usage:
	      valac [OPTION?] FILE... -	Vala Compiler

       --abi-stability
	      Enable support for ABI stability
	      This  changes  the current behaviour to output public members of
	      classes and interfaces the same order as	they  appear  in  Vala
	      source.	For libraries is recommended to	use --abi-stability to
	      ensure the maintainability of the	resulting  Application	Binary
	      Interface	 (ABI).	  This option is disabled by default for back-
	      ward  compatibility  because  it	can  break  ABI	 of   existing
	      projects.
