MKOCTFILE(1) General Commands Manual MKOCTFILE(1)

mkoctfile - Compile dynamic-load modules for GNU Octave

mkoctfile [OPTION]... file...

mkoctfile is used to compile C, C++, or Fortran source code in to a dynamically loadable .oct file for octave(1).

Print help message.
Add include directory dir to compile commands.
Add include directory to second include search path after '-I'.
Add definition def to compiler command.
Add library lib to link command.
Add library directory dir to link command.
Pass -Rdir to link command.
Enable debugging option for all compilers.
Add -pthread to link command.
Pass flags to the compiler such as -Wa,OPTION.
Pass flags to the linker such as -Wl,-rpath=...
Generate dependency files (.d) for C and C++ source files.
Compile but do not link.
Link a stand-alone executable file.
Strip the output file.
Create a MEX file. Set the default output extension to .mex.
Output filename. Default extension is .oct (or .mex if --mex is specified) unless linking a stand-alone executable.
Print configuration variable VAR. There are three categories of variables:
Octave configuration variables that users may override with environment variables. These are used in commands that mkoctfile executes.

Octave configuration variables that are provided for informational purposes only. Except for OCTAVE_HOME and OCTAVE_EXEC_HOME, users may not override these variables.
If OCTAVE_HOME or OCTAVE_EXEC_HOME are set in the environment, then other variables are adjusted accordingly with OCTAVE_HOME or OCTAVE_EXEC_HOME substituted for the original value of the directory specified by the --prefix or --exec-prefix options that were used when Octave was configured.
