ac++ is the AspectC++ weaver. ac++ does source-to-source translation. This manual page documents the minimum
needed in order to use ac++. For a better reference,
see AspectC++ documentation.
The first syntax form above invokes ac++ in WPT
mode, while the second one invokes it in STU mode (see OPERATION MODES
WPT (whole program transformation) mode does the
translation of the entire source tree into another one. This is useful to
apply all the aspects of one source tree, generating other source tree
with the aspects woven into the sources.
To use WPT mode, run ac++ with the first syntax form
Specify the original source tree in the srcdir argument, and a name for the destination source tree in the
STU (single translation unit) mode does the
translation of one translation unit, namely a C++ single file, for
exemple. This mode applies to the translation units all aspects that
To use STU mode, run ac++ with the second syntax form.
Specify the translation unit in the input argument,
and the output file in the output argument. The
-c works as in g++: if omitted,
you're telling to ac++ to compile the source into an
executable; if present, source will be compiled into an object (.o) file.
Further options can be seen in AspectC++ documentation.
