       bigloo v2.3 - `a practical Scheme compiler'

       bigloo [ options ] [ input ]

       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 either C files or Java class files. The C
       files 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         Many options are available. Type `bigloo -help' to
                       print them.

       -jvm            Produces Java class files instead of C files. This
                       option has to be used when compiling and when linking.

       -no-jvmjar      Disable jar file production when linking with -jvm.

       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)).

       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.

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

       TMPDIR          Set the temporary directory. The default value is

       BIGLOOLIB       The path to find the Bigloo's library.
