cim - GNU Simula compiler…  more info»



GNU Cim is a compiler for the programming language Simula (except
unspecified parameters to formal or virtual procedures (see the
documentation for how portable code for formal procedures can be
written)).  It offers a class concept, separate compilation with full
type checking, interface to external C routines, an application
package for process simulation and a coroutine concept.

The portability of the GNU Simula Compiler is based on the C
programming language.  The compiler and the run-time system is written
in C, and the compiler produces C code, that is passed to a C compiler
for further processing towards machine code.

The following instructions assumes that you are using a
Bourne-compatible shell. Further details can be found in the enclosed

The simplest way to compile this package is:

  1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and 
     type `./configure' (or `CFLAGS=-O2 LDFLAGS=-s ./configure', 
     which is recomended when using GCC) to configure the package
     for your system.

     Running `configure' takes awhile.  While running, it prints some
     messages telling which features it is checking for.

  2. Type `make' to compile the package

  3. Type `make install' to install the package

You may want to compile the run-time-system with CFLAGS=-O2, but
have the cim compiler compile produced C-code with CFLAGS=-O0. 
This can most easilly be done by the following steps:

  1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and 
     type `CFLAGS=-O2 ./configure'

  2. Type `make' to compile the package.

  3. Type `make install' to install the package.

  4. type `CFLAGS=-O0 ./configure'

  5. type `cd src; make' followed by `make install'
GCC may run out of virtual memory, and therefore you may want to use a
standard C-compiler instead. You can do that by typing `CC=cc

Static vs. shared libraries

Cim builds by default both static and shared libraries.  You may need
to set some environment variables (LD_LIBRARY_PATH under Linux) or
edit some system configuration file (/etc/ under Linux) to
get access to the shared libraries at run-time. See the message that
is produced at the end of `make install' for some details.  If you
don't want shared libraries, then please run `./configure' with option
--disable-shared. Static libraries can be disabled with the option


Please mail bug reports for Cim to Please include
the Cim version number and the system type, which you can get by
running "cim --version", a copy of config.cache, and relevant Simula-
and produced C-code.

Version 4

GNU Cim version 4 is experimental.  If you want a stable compiler, please
use version 3 instead.  We are planing support for more optimizations.

Version 3

GNU Cim version 3 is no longer experimental.  The compiler may use a lot
of virtual memory. If that is a problem for you, please split your
program into separate compiled modules or use version 2 of cim
