NAME

shcomp - compile a shell script

SYNOPSIS

shcomp [ options ] [infile [outfile]]

DESCRIPTION

Unless -D is specified, shcomp takes a shell script, infile, and creates a binary format file, outfile, that ksh can read and execute with the same effect as the original script.

Since aliases are processed as the script is read, alias definitions whose value requires variable expansion will not work correctly.

If -D is specifed, all double quoted strings that are preceded by $ are output. These are the messages that need to be translated to locale specific versions for internationalization.

If outfile is omitted, then the results will be written to standard output. If infile is also omitted, the shell script will be read from standard input.

OPTIONS

-D, --dictionary

Generate a list of strings that need to be placed in a message catalog for internationalization.
-n, --noexec

Displays warning messages for obsolete or non-conforming constructs.
-v, --verbose

Displays input from infile onto standard error as it reads it.

EXIT STATUS

0
Successful completion.
>0

An error occurred.
