4 NAME
5 ----
6
7 foo - frobnicate the bar library
8
9 SYNOPSIS
10 --------
11
12 `foo` [`-bar`] [`-c` *config-file* ] *file* ...
13
14 DESCRIPTION
15 -----------
16
17 `foo` frobnicates the bar library by tweaking internal symbol tables. By
18 default it parses all baz segments and rearranges them in reverse order by
19 time for the xyzzy(1) linker to find them. The symdef entry is then compressed
20 using the WBG (Whiz-Bang-Gizmo) algorithm. All files are processed in the
21 order specified.
22
23 OPTIONS
24 -------
25
26 `-b`
27 Do not write "busy" to stdout while processing.
28
29 `-c` *config-file*
30 Use the alternate system wide *config-file* instead of */etc/foo.conf*. This
31 overrides any `FOOCONF` environment variable.
32
33 `-a`
34 In addition to the baz segments, also parse the blurfl headers.
35
36 `-r`
37 Recursive mode. Operates as fast as lightning at the expense of a megabyte
38 of virtual memory.
39
40 FILES
41 -----
42
43 */etc/foo.conf*
44 The system wide configuration file. See foo(5) for further details.
45
46 *~/.foorc*
47 Per user configuration file. See foo(5) for further details.
48
49 ENVIRONMENT
50 -----------
51
52 `FOOCONF`
53 If non-null the full pathname for an alternate system wide */etc/foo.conf*.
54 Overridden by the `-c` option.
55
56 DIAGNOSTICS
57 -----------
58
59 The following diagnostics may be issued on stderr:
60
61 **Bad magic number.**
62 The input file does not look like an archive file.
63
64 **Old style baz segments.**
65 `foo` can only handle new style baz segments. COBOL object libraries are not
66 supported in this version.
67
68 BUGS
69 ----
70
71 The command name should have been chosen more carefully to reflect its
72 purpose.
