NAME
       yaz-asncomp - YAZ ASN.1 compiler

SYNOPSIS
       yaz-asncomp [-v] [-c cfile] [-h hfile] [-p pfile] [-d config]
                   [-I includeout] [-i includedir] [-m module] [filename]

DESCRIPTION
       yaz-asncomp is an ASN.1 compiler that reads an ASN.1 specification in
       filename and produces C/C++ definitions and BER encoders/decoders for
       it.

       The produced C/C++ code and header files uses the ODR module of YAZ
       which is a library that encodes/decodes/prints BER packages.
       yaz-asncomp allows you to specify name of resulting source via options.
       Alternatively, you can specify a DEFINITIONS file, which provides
       customized output to many output files - if the ASN.1 specification
       file consists of many modules.

       This utility is written in Tcl. Any version of Tcl should work.

OPTIONS
       -v
           Makes the ASN.1 compiler print more verbose about the various
           stages of operations.

       -c cfile
           Specifies the name of the C/C++ file with encoders/decoders.

       -h hfile
           Specifies the name of header file with definitions.

       -p pfile
           Specifies the name of the a private header file with definitions.
           By default all definitions are put in header file (option -h).

       -d dfile
           Specifies the name of a definitions file.

       -I iout
           Specifies first part of directory in which header files are
           written.

       -i idir
           Specifies second part of directory in which header files are
           written.

       -m module
           Specifies that ASN.1 compiler should only process the module given.
           If this option is not specified, all modules in the ASN.1 file are
           processed.

DEFINITIONS FILE
       The definitions file is really a Tcl script but follows traditional
       rules for Shell like configuration files. That is # denotes the
       beginning of a comment. Definitions are line oriented. The definitions
       files usually consist of a series of variable assignments of the form:

       set name value

       Available variables are:

       default-prefix
           Sets prefix for names in the produced output. The value consists of
           three tokens: C function prefix, C typedef prefix and preprocessor
           prefix respectively.

       prefix(module)
           This value sets prefix values for module module. The value has same
           form as default-prefix.

       filename(module)
           Specifies filename for C/header file for module module.

       init(module,h)
           Code fragment to be put in first part of public header for module
           module.

       body(module,h)
           Code fragment to be put in last part of public header for module
           module (trailer).

       init(module,c)
           Code fragment to be put in first part of C based encoder/decoder
           for module module.

       body(module,c)
           Code fragment to be put in last part of C based encoder/decoder for
           module module (trailer).

       map(module,name)
           Maps ASN.1 type in module module of name to value.

       membermap(module,name,member)
           Maps member member in SEQUENCE/CHOICE of name in module module to
           value. The value consists of one or two tokens. First token is name
           of C preprocessor part. Second token is resulting C member name. If
           second token is omitted the value (one token) is both preprocessor
           part and C struct,union.

       unionmap(module,name,member)
           Maps member member in CHOICE of name in module module to value.
           Value consists of two or three tokens. The first token is name of
           the integer in the union that is used as selector for the union
           itself. The second token is name of the union. The third token
           overrides the name of the CHOICE member; if omitted the member name
           is used.
