uuagc(1) Attribute Grammar compiler


uuagc [ options ... ] file


This program uuagc is the compiler of the (Utrecht University) Attribute Grammar system. It takes as input AG source files (.ag) and produces as output regular Haskell source files (.hs).

Available options:

generate default module header
generate module header, specify module name
-d, --data
generate data type definition

generate strict data fields (when data is generated)

generate strict wrap fields for WRAPPER generated data
-c, --catas
generate catamorphisms
-f, --semfuns
generate semantic functions
-s, --signatures
generate signatures for semantic functions

use newtypes instead of type synonyms
-p, --pretty
generate pretty printed list of attributes
-w, --wrappers
generate wappers for semantic domains
-r, --rename
rename data constructors

use modified copy rule

use nested tuples

experimental: generate syntax macro code (using knit catas)
-o file, --output=file
specify output file
-v, --verbose
verbose error message format
-h, -?, --help
get usage information
-a, --all
do everything (-dcfsprm)
-P search path, --=search path
specify seach path
set prefix for semantic functions

generate self attribute

check for cyclic definitions

get version information
optimize generated code (--visit --case)

try generating visit functions

force evaluation using function seq (visit functions only)

use unboxed tuples

use nested cases instead of let (visit functions only)

turn warnings into fatal errors

dump internal grammar representation (in generated code)
