java2perl6api - a Java to Perl 6 API translator
java2perl6api [options] class_file [...] --help this message --outdir=D root directory for output files (default '.') --nonest don't place output files in nested directories --nocompile don't compile the generated modules into .pir files --norecurse don't recurse into types used by this class --set_types=S replace typemapings with those in file S --add_types=S add/override typemapings with those in file S --javapopts=S a string of command line flags for javap, example: -j '-classpath /some/path' --genwith=S the name of a Java::Javap::Generator:: module which will make the output, defaults to Perl6 --genopts=S strings to pass to your --genwith constructor --trace=N defines the trace level (integer value), where: 0 means silence, no trace, 1 is the default minimum trace messages, >= 9 for full trace
This script is the driver for the
Java::Javap module which reads compiled Java files, parses them into a tree, and generates output in Perl 6.
To get a single Perl module in the java/sql subdirectory of the current directory with an API translation of java.sql.Connection:
To get a single Perl module in the current directory with an API for com.example.YourModule whose class file is in /usr/lib/yourjavas:
java2perl6api --javapopts '-classpath /usr/lib/yourjavas' com.example.YourModule
To put the output from the previous example into the /usr/local/javaapis directory:
java2perl6api --javapopts '-classpath /usr/lib/yourjavas' \ --outdir /usr/local/javaapis com.example.YourModule
Prints a short help message (the same as the SYNOPSIS above).
This option takes a single value, you need to quote it. That value is passed directly to
-classpath /some/path is the most common value. Be aware that
Java::Javap parses the output of
javap with a grammar, so some
javap flags will cause fatal errors.
Sets the root directory for output files. Default '.' (current directory).
By default output files are written into a directory tree (rooted at --outdir) based on the namespace of the Java package.
Use the --nonest to write all files into the root output directory.
Disable the default behaviour of recursively processing any classes referenced by the specified class.
Disable compiling the generated Perl 6 .pm6 file into a .pir file. (Generating a .pir file takes time but significantly speeds up any future use of the module.)
Integer value. Assign zero to it (--trace=0) to silence all messages from the script. 1 is the minimum trace level. An integer >= 9 will emit full trace messages.
Specify the Java::Javap::Generator::* class to use to generate the output files. Defaults to Perl6 (i.e.
Java::Javap::Generator::Perl6) which generates Perl 6 roles in
