Products and Parameters .

A product (e.g.: :exe) is a Unix file, a directory or a list of files that can be requested from Eli. Parameters (e.g.: +fold) allow the requestor to control some characteristics of the requested product.

Product files can be displayed by appending >, file-lists can be viewed with :viewlist and generated directories by listing their contents with !ls. A single file named `f' can be selected from a directory by appending /f to the request for that directory.

For further details see Eli Products and Parameters.

Processor Generation

:exe
Executable file containing the generated processor.

:source
File-List with all source and include files making up the processor.

:allspecs
File-List with all files defining a processor.

:gencode
File-List with all files generated by Eli from your specifications.

:fwGen
Directory with all files specified by one .fw file.

:ligaResults
File-List with all files generated by Liga from your specifications.

+define
cpp directive for C compilation.

+fold
To suppress case distinctions in identifiers and keywords.

+ignore
To switch off the verification of the presence of certain include files.

+parser
Selects the parser generator:pgs/cola.

Generating Specifications

:bnf
File containing complete concrete grammar in BNF notation.

:consyntax

Standard output from a test run, for example
   input +cmd=(x.specs:exe):stdout

:run
Execute the generated processor, for example
   . +cmd=(x.specs:exe) input :run

:output
Output files from a test run, for example
   input +cmd=(x.specs:exe) :output !ls -l

:dbx, :gdb

Information About the Derivation

!:redo
Tell Eli to redo a derivation step, even though no inputs to it have changed.

!:test
Ask Eli to check whether an object has been modified.

!:inputs
