ZOMCompileBoot

Generates a program to compile all the compilable documents selected.

Syntax

ZOMCompileBoot <object specification> [<option>...]

Options

;k <keyword> [!]

The ;k option is used to assign a keyword to the selected object(s). If the keyword is already assigned, this assignment is ignored. If "!" is specified, the keyword assignment is removed for the object(s).

;p <property> [!]

Set the specified user-designated property for the selected object(s). If "!" is indicated, the specified property is reset for the selected object(s).

;d <document name>

This specifies that the output is to be written to the indicated document. The document must be already created. If the ;d option is omitted, it indicates that the output is to be written to the screen.

;a

If a document name is specified, the ;a option indicates that the output is to be appended to the end of the document. If the ;a option is omitted, it indicates that the output is to replace the contents of the document specified in ;d option.

;b

If a document name is specified, the ;b option indicates that you would like to browse the document file after the action is completed. The ;b option does not take effect if the ;d option was not used to specify an output document.

;w

If a document name was not specified, the ;w option sets pause on while the information is being listed to the screen. The ;w option does not take effect if output is directed to a document using the ;d option.

Comments

This generates a program consisting of compile statements that compile the objects indicated. It is used to generate system bootstrap scripts.

Examples

The following command generates a program that, when executed, compiles the program "pEditCusts." The output is written to the screen.

ZOMCompileBoot pEditCusts

The following command writes a program that compiles all compilable objects out to the document CompAll.
