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

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

       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.

	      Look for .gir files in DIRECTORY

	      Look for GIR .metadata files in DIRECTORY

	      Include binding for PACKAGE

	      Output VAPI file name

	      Library name

	      Shared library name used in generated gir

	      GObject-Introspection repository file name

       -b, --basedir=DIRECTORY
	      Base source directory

       -d, --directory=DIRECTORY
	      Change output directory from current working directory

	      Display version number

	      Display API version number

       -C, --ccode
	      Output C code

       -H, --header=FILE
	      Output C header file

	      Use C header file

	      Place output in file FILE

       -g, --debug
	      Produce debug information

	      Enable multithreading support (DEPRECATED	AND IGNORED)

	      Enable GLib memory profiler

       -D, --define=SYMBOL...
	      Define SYMBOL

	      Use SYMBOL as entry point

	      Do not include standard packages

	      Disable assertions

	      Enable additional	run-time checks

	      Enable deprecated	features

	      Hide symbols marked as internal

	      Enable experimental features

	      Disable warnings

	      Treat warnings as	fatal

	      Do not check whether used	symbols	exist in local packages

	      Enable experimental enhancements for non-null types

	      Enable GObject creation tracing

	      Use COMMAND as C compiler	command

       -X, --Xcc=OPTION...
	      Pass OPTION to the C compiler

	      Use COMMAND as pkg-config	command

	      Write code tree to FILE

	      Keep temporary files

	      Use the given profile instead of the default

       -q, --quiet
	      Do not print messages to the console

       -v, --verbose
	      Print additional messages	to the console

	      Disable colored output, alias for	--color=never

	      Enable color output, options are 'always', 'never', or 'auto'
	      When  no	value is given always is implied. When neither --color
	      or --no-color are	declared then --color=auto is used where  out-
	      put is colored when stderr is a terminal.

	      Target version of	glib for code generation

	      XML of gresources

	      Look for resources in DIRECTORY

	      Write vala build version in generated files

	      Do not write vala	build version in generated files

	      Arguments	passed to directly compiled executeable

	      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



       Interfaces,  properties,	signals, foreach, lambda expressions, type in-
       ference for local variables, generics, non-null types, assisted	memory
       management, exception handling
