mbsc - the MBS compiler for varkon
VARKON is a high level development tool for applications in the
area of Engineering, Computer Aided Design and Product Modelling.
The MBS compiler reads source lines frome MBS-files and produces
binary modules in MBO-files.
the name of one or more sourcefiles
report current version information and exit
use linewidth of n characters in listfile
write n lines per page to listfile
set module protection code to n
set PMSIZE to n bytes
FILES AND ENVIRONMENT
mbsc needs the following environment parameter to be set up in order
to function properly. If not defined a default value is used instead.
VARKON_ERM = /usr/share/varkon/erm
Due to a bug the compiler will not report if the size of PM (PMSIZE)
is too small to hold the entire module. Instead it truncates the
module and writes it to disc without notice.
The VARKON system was originally developed by a group at the University of
Linkoping in Sweden during 1984-86 under the leadership of Dr. Johan
Kjellander now the president of Microform AB. Since then the system has
been owned, marketed and further developed by Microform AB.
Subsequently the license was changed to GNU General Public License and
VARKON was taken over by the CAD research group of the Örebro University
