SYNOPSISfnidl [-directory=pathname] [-package=package] [-globals=basename] [file.idl]
DESCRIPTIONfnidl is Fnorb's IDL compiler. It takes interface and type definitions in IDL files (or from its standard input), and generates the stub and skeleton code required by Fnorb clients and servers. fnidl currently assumes that you have a pre-processor named gcc or cpp, somewhere on your path.
OPTIONSOptions currently allowed are those used by your pre-processor plus the following:
- All Python module and packages generated by fnidl will be placed in the directory specified by pathname (which must already exist). The default is the current working directory.
- All Python module and packages generated by fnidl will be placed in the specified package under the output directory (see above). The package name is in dotted notation (e.g. foo.bar.baz) and fnidl will create any packages in the package name that do not already exist.
- Stubs and skeletons for IDL definitions at the global scope are put in the packages basename and basename_skel instead of the default _GlobalIDL and _GlobalIDL_skel.
