The following options are supported by the default master program:

-h, --help,
Print help message and exit.
-eexpr,--execute=expr
Execute expr and exit.
-E, --preprocess
Just run the preprocessor.
-Idir,--include-path=dir
Append dir to the include path.
-Mdir,--modue-path=dir
Append dir to the module path.
-Pdir,--program-path=dir
Append dir to the program path.
-v, --version
Print version of Pike and exit.
-Vmajor.minor,--compat=major.minor
Set the compatibility version to Pike version major.minor.
-w, --warnings
Enable warnings.
-W, --woff, --no-warnings
Disable warnings.
--assembler-debug
Set the peephole optimizer debug level (debug).
--compiler-trace
Turn on tracing of the Pike compiler (debug).
--debug
Increase or set the debug level (debug).
--debug-without=feature
Hide feature from the resolver (debug).
--dumpversion
Print the Pike version number to stderr, e.g. "7.8.10\n"
--features
List some of the features that are enabled in this Pike binary and exit (debug).
--info
Show various information about this Pike installation and exit (debug).
--optimizer-debug
Set the global optimizer debug level (debug).
--show-paths
Show the paths pike will use and exit (debug).
--trace
Increase the trace level (debug).
--trace=num
Set the trace level to num (debug).

OPERANDS

The following operand is supported:
script
A path to a script written in Pike to be compiled and then executed. Everything on the commandline after the script is passed as arguments to the script.

If no script is specified, pike will start in interactive- (Hilfe) mode.

REGISTRY KEYS

On NT, Pike is affected by the following keys in the registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Pike\.\PIKE_MASTER HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Pike\.\PIKE_MASTER

Specifies the name of the master program (overridden by -mmaster_program ).

ENVIRONMENT

Pike is affected by the following environment variables:
PIKE_MASTER
Specifies the name of the master program (overridden by -mmaster_program ).

Depending on operating system Pike may be affected by the following environment variables:

LC_ALL
Overrides the other LC_* variables.
LC_COLLATE
Specifies the character collation sequence.
LC_CTYPE
Specifies the character classification.
LC_MESSAGES
Specifies the language of the system messagedatabase.
LC_NUMERIC
Specifies the decimal and thousand delimiters.
LC_TIME
Specifies the date and time formats.

The default master program is affected by the following environment variables:

PIKE_INCLUDE_PATH
List of directories separated with colon (:), to search for include-files.
PIKE_PROGRAM_PATH
List of directories separated with colon (:), to search for program-files.
PIKE_MODULE_PATH
List of directories separated with colon (:), to search for modules.
LONG_PIKE_ERRORS
If set disables truncation of paths in backtraces.
SHORT_PIKE_ERRORS
If set and LONG_PIKE_ERRORS is not set, truncates paths to just the filename in backtraces.
PIKE_BACKTRACE_LEN
The maximum number of elements in arrays to describe in backtraces.

Note that the above environment variables have effect before the default master program attempts to load the Getopt(3P) module, which occurrs before the master program arguments are parsed.

EXIT STATUS

The following exit values are returned:
0
Successfull completion.
>0
An error occurred. See output on stderr (fd #2) for reason.
