6 Interoperability

This part of the cssc manual describes how cssc interoperates with sccs. For the enormous majority of cases, this occurs seamlessly; however sometimes it is not possible for cssc to pick “one right way” to proceed unaided. Circumstances where this occurs are described in detail, below.

In order to interoperate better with other implementations of sccs, the cssc suite can also be configured to turn off several features which provide flexibility beyond that which is available in some other implementations of sccs. Some other interoperability features of cssc exist to maintain compatibility but do not need to be turned off.
