tccis designed to be a compilation manager, coordinating these various components into a coherent compilation scheme. It is also the normal user's interface to the TDF system on Unix machines: direct use of the various components of the system is not recommended. Therefore it is worth familiarising oneself with
tccbefore attempting to use the TDF system. To aid this familiarisation
tcchas been designed to have the same look and feel as the system C compiler
cc, but with added functionality to deal with the additional features of the TDF system. This does not mean that
tcccan be necessarily regarded as a direct replacement for
cc; the extra portability checks performed by the TDF system require the precise compilation environment to be specified to
tccin a way that it cannot be to
There are two basic components to this paper. The first describes
the TDF compilation strategy and how it is implemented by
The second is a Quick Reference section at the end of the paper, which
is intended to be a
tcc user's manual. For even quicker
tcc will print a list of all its command-line
options (with a brief description) if invoked with the -query
