NAME

diameterc - diameterc [<options>] <file>

DESCRIPTION

The diameterc utility is used to compile a diameter dictionary file into Erlang source. The resulting source implements the interface diameter required to encode and decode the dictionary's messages and AVPs.
The module diameter_make(3erl) provides an alternate compilation interface.

USAGE

diameterc [<options>] <file>:
Compile a single dictionary file to Erlang source. Valid options are as follows.
-i <dir>:
Prepend the specified directory to the code path. Use to point at beam files compiled from inherited dictionaries, @inherits in a dictionary file creating a beam dependency, not an erl/hrl dependency.
Multiple -i options can be specified.
 
-o <dir>:
Write generated source to the specified directory. Defaults to the current working directory.
-E:
 
-H:
Suppress erl and hrl generation, respectively.
--name <name>:
 
--prefix <prefix>:
Transform the input dictionary before compilation, setting @name or @prefix to the specified string.
--inherits <arg>:
Transform the input dictionary before compilation, appending @inherits of the specified string.
Two forms of --inherits have special meaning:
 
--inherits - --inherits Prev/Mod
The first has the effect of clearing any previous inherits, the second of replacing a previous inherits of Prev to one of Mod. This allows the semantics of the input dictionary to be changed without modifying the file itself.
 
Multiple --inherits options can be specified.
 

EXIT STATUS

Returns 0 on success, non-zero on failure.
