SYSNOPISzcc [flags] [files to be compiled/linked]
DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents briefly the z88dk tools. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may be used by others), because the original program does not have a manual page.
Please refer to the z88dk documentation in /usr/share/doc/z88dk-doc for the complete description of the system.
If /usr/share/doc/z88dk-doc not exists, please install the package z88dk-doc.
The frontend of z88dk is called zcc, it is this that you should call if you want to do any compilations.
The files can be either C files (.c), preprocessed C files(.i), compiled C files (.asm), optimised compiled file (.opt) or assembled files (.obj), any combination of them can be mixed together and the relevant processed done on them.
Processing of a file list is done on each file in turn (i.e. preprocess, compile, optimise, assemble) at the end all files may be linked into a single executable if desired.
OPTIONSOptions to control the action of the frontend:
- Name of alternate config file (must be the first argument).
Predefined alternate configs: abc80 ABC80 aceansi Jupiter ACE, using VT-ANSI engine cpm CP/M msx MSX 1 mz Sharp MZ mzansi Sharp MZ, using VT-ANSI nc Amstrad NC100 rex REX 6000 sam Sam Coupe svi Spectravideo SVI m5 SORD M5 ti82 Ti82, using ROM text routines ti82ansi Ti82, using VT-ANSI ti83 Ti83, using ROM text routines ti83ansi Ti83, using VT-ANSI ti85 Ti85, using ROM text routines ti85ansi Ti85, using VT-ANSI ti86 Ti86, using ROM text routines ti86ansi Ti86, using VT-ANSI ti8x Ti83+, using ROM text routines [ti8xansi] Ti83+, using VT-ANSI vz VZ / Laser 200 vzansi VZ / Laser 200, using VT-ANSI z88 Cambridge Z88 z88ansi Cambridge Z88, using VT-ANSI z88net Cambridge Z88 with TCP/IP zx ZX Spectrum zx81 ZX 81 zx81ansi ZX 81, using VT-ANSI zxansi ZX Spectrum, using VT-ANSI
- Produce .asm (or .opt) file only
- Do not link object files
- Preprocess files only, leave output in .i file
- -o [file]
- Specify output file for binary (default is a.bas for BASIC programs and a.bin for application binaries)
- Optimize compiler output (to .opt file) n can be either 0 (none) 1,2,3, level 2 is recommended. Level 3 is suitable for large programs (includes certain lib functions to reduce size of code(!))
- Verbose - echo commands as they are executed
- Don't be verbose
Options to control library usage:
- Link in a library - supply just the name (after placing them in the correct directory).
The 'name' are: farz88 Z88 far support gfx Z88 BASIC graphics lib gfxapp Z88 application graphics lib m Generic math routines malloc Generic near malloc routine mz OZ's math routines ndos Fake file-routines, return errors only net Z88 socket routines for ZSock netdev Z88 socket routines for devices p3 +3 file support library tigray82 Ti82 graylib routines tigray83 Ti83 graylib routines tigray83p Ti83+ graylib routines tigray85 Ti85 graylib routines tigray86 Ti86 graylib routines z88 Some Z88 application routines, like mailboxing zxmath ZX Spectrum ROM based math routines zxvgs ZXVGS hardware support
- Generate .map files when assembling/linking
Options to control the type code produced:
- Implicitly define everything as unsigned unless explicitly told otherwise.
- Create an application image (i.e. bank 63,62 etc)
- (App) Notify the compiler that you're trying to make an application
- (App) Number of 256 byte pages required for bad application
- (App) Origin for a Z88 application
- (App) Amount of safedata required by your code
- (App) Where static variables should be dropped (only valid for single file compilations, but see later)
- (App) Expanded z88 required -no-expandz88 (App) Expanded z88 not required (these two flags toggle some startup code to check for an expanded machine)
- Produce standalone code that can be run from a set address from BASIC. Use -zorg= to change the address
- (Use with above) produces relocatable code that can be loaded into a DIM'd BASIC array.
- Intelligent printf routine handling
- Turn off the intelligent printf handling
- Shortcut to generate .o files from library .c files
- Sets the stack offset for shared libs (see package.txt for details)
- Allow z80asm to be verbose, this tends to generate a lot of output to the screen so may not be desired.
- Intersperse C code as comments in the assembler output, warning: this *will* clobber some optimizations.
- Turn on all the compiler warnings
- Turn off all compiler warnings
- Turn off the compiler warning [num]
- Turn on the compiler warning [num]
- Cause the compiler to emit asxx compatible code
- Pass an option through to the pre-processor
- Pass an option through to the assembler
In addition, the flags, -D, -I, -U are passed through to the preprocessor.
