Class NetRexxC

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.lang.Cloneable, SelectorContainer

    public class NetRexxC
    extends MatchingTask
    Compiles NetRexx source files. This task can take the following arguments:
    • binary
    • classpath
    • comments
    • compile
    • console
    • crossref
    • decimal
    • destdir
    • diag
    • explicit
    • format
    • keep
    • logo
    • replace
    • savelog
    • srcdir
    • sourcedir
    • strictargs
    • strictassign
    • strictcase
    • strictimport
    • symbols
    • time
    • trace
    • utf8
    • verbose
    • suppressMethodArgumentNotUsed
    • suppressPrivatePropertyNotUsed
    • suppressVariableNotUsed
    • suppressExceptionNotSignalled
    • suppressDeprecation
    • removeKeepExtension
    Of these arguments, the srcdir argument is required.

    When this task executes, it will recursively scan the srcdir looking for NetRexx source files to compile. This task makes its compile decision based on timestamp.

    Before files are compiled they and any other file in the srcdir will be copied to the destdir allowing support files to be located properly in the classpath. The reason for copying the source files before the compile is that NetRexxC has only two destinations for classfiles:

    1. The current directory, and,
    2. The directory the source is in (see sourcedir option)

      • setBinary

        public void setBinary​(boolean binary)
        Set whether literals are treated as binary, rather than NetRexx types. Valid true values are "yes", "on" or "true". Anything else sets the flag to false. The default is false.
        Parameters:
        binary - a boolean value.
      • setClasspath

        public void setClasspath​(java.lang.String classpath)
        Set the classpath used for NetRexx compilation.

        classpath - the classpath to use.
      • setComments

        public void setComments​(boolean comments)
        Set whether comments are passed through to the generated java source. Valid true values are "yes", "on" or "true". Anything else sets the flag to false. The default value is false.
        Parameters:
        comments - a boolean value.
      • setCompact

        public void setCompact​(boolean compact)
        Set whether error messages come out in compact or verbose format. Valid true values are "yes", "on" or "true". Anything else sets the flag to false. The default value is true.
        Parameters:
        compact - a boolean value.

        public void setCompile​(boolean compile)
        Set whether the NetRexx compiler should compile the generated java code. Valid true values are "yes", "on" or "true". Anything else sets the flag to false. The default value is true. Setting this flag to false, will automatically set the keep flag to true.

        Parameters:
        console - a boolean value.

        public void setSuppressPrivatePropertyNotUsed​(boolean suppressPrivatePropertyNotUsed)

        suppressPrivatePropertyNotUsed - a boolean value.
      • setSuppressVariableNotUsed

        public void setSuppressVariableNotUsed​(boolean suppressVariableNotUsed)
        Whether the task should suppress the "Variable is set but not used" in strictargs-Mode. Be careful with this one! The warning is logged as verbose message, though.

      • setSuppressExceptionNotSignalled

        public void setSuppressExceptionNotSignalled​(boolean suppressExceptionNotSignalled)

        suppressDeprecation - a boolean value.
      • setRemoveKeepExtension

        public void setRemoveKeepExtension​(boolean removeKeepExtension)

        Parameters:
        removeKeepExtension - boolean
      • init

        public void init()
        init-Method sets defaults from Properties. That way, when ant is called with arguments like -Dant.netrexxc.verbose=verbose5 one can easily take control of all netrexxc-tasks.
        Overrides:
        init in class Task
