NAME

build-lives-rfx-plugin - builds rendered effects for LiVES

SYNOPSIS

build-lives-rfx-plugin script_name [plugin_dir] -get section file

DESCRIPTION

This perl script is used by LiVES to compile an RFX (rendered effect) plugin for LiVES. It is generally called from build-lives-rfx-plugin-multi for a script which has a language code representing LiVES-perl. The script_name must be the full (absolute) path to the plugin script, and plugin_dir can be used to specify the output directory where the compiled plugin should be generated. If plugin_dir is not defined then /tmp is assumed.
 
The second variant with -get is used to print out a script section from a plugin script to stdout. It is generally only used internally by LiVES.
 
Return values The script returns the following values
 
0 - success 1 - the value of a trigger was greater than the number of parameters 2 - a value could not be read from the script file 3 - the language code of the plugin script was not equivalent to LiVES-perl 4 - the API version level of the plugin script was invalid 5 - the <define> section was missing from the plugin script
