NAME
       bigloo v1.9 - `a practical Scheme compiler'


SYNOPSIS
       bigloo [ options ] [ input ]


DESCRIPTION
       Bigloo is a Scheme compiler. Scheme is defined in an IEEE standard for
       the Scheme Programming Language but Bigloo does not entirely conform to
       it. The compiler produces C files which are then compiled by any ISO C
       compiler to produce .o or executable files. Bigloo is a module compiler
       which means that it is allowed to compile several files and to link
       them together to produce an unique executable.


OPTIONS
       options         Many options are available. Type `bigloo -help' to
                       print them.

       input           If an input file is provided, Bigloo compiles it.
                       Otherwise the interpreter is entered. Input must be a
                       recognized Scheme source file name (i.e.  a file name
                       with a recognized suffix (see -suffix option)).

CONFIGURATION FILE
       Each Bigloo's user can use a special configuration file. This file must
       be named `~/.bigloorc'. This file makes it possible to modify the
       behaviour of the compiler. This file is a regular Scheme file which
       contains expressions bound in an environment where compiler parameters
       are bound.  See the documentation for details.


ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       BIGLOOHEAP      Set the environment size (in megabytes). The default
                       value is 4.

       TMPDIR          Set the temporary directory. The default value is
                       `/tmp'.

       BIGLOOLIB       The path to find the Bigloo's library.


FILES
       /.../lib/bigloo/1.9/bigloo.heap -- saved heap image for the compiler.
       /.../lib/bigloo/1.9/bigloo.h -- definitions which are #include'd in the
       C code.
       /.../lib/bigloo/1.9/libbigloo.a -- library.
       /.../lib/bigloo/1.9/libbigloo_u.a -- library.
       ~/.bigloorc -- user `runtime-command' configuration file.
       /.../.bigloorc -- idem.
