In its simplest form,
mixasm is invoked with a single argument,
which is the name of the MIXAL file to be compiled, e.g.
will compile either hello or hello.mixal, producing a binary file named hello.mix if no errors are found.
mixasm can be invoked with the following command
line options (note, that, following GNU's conventions, we provide a long
option name for each available single letter switch):
mixasm [-vhulO] [-o OUTPUT_FILE] [--version] [--help] [--usage] [--ndebug] [--output=OUTPUT_FILE] [--list[=LIST_FILE]] file
The meaning of these options is as follows:
Prints a summary of available options and exits.
Do not include debugging information in the compiled file, saving space but disallowing breakpoint setting at source level and symbol table inspection under
By default, the given source file file.mixal is compiled into file.mix. You can provide a different name for the output file using this option.
