       sparkmake - generates SPARK index and metafiles


       spark [OPTIONS] [ROOT_FILE]


       The  SPARKMake  tool automatically generates two files that can be used
       as arguments to the Examiner command line: The index file and the  meta
       file. For more information please refer to the full Examiner manual.

       This  manual  page  only  summarises  the sparkmake command-line flags,
       please refer to the full SPARKMake manual for further information.


       These options do not quite follow the usual GNU  command  line  syntax.
       All  options start with a single dash instead of the usual two and they
       can also be abbreviated, as long as the  abbreviation  is  unique.  For
       example  -expand  can  be  abbreviated  to  -expa  but not -exp as this
       clashes with -export_indent.

       For a description of the regular expression syntax, please refer to the
       appropriate section below.

       If ROOT_FILE is not given then we produce an index and metafile for all
       files in and under the current directory.

       -help  Display command-line help.

              Display version information.

              Look in and  under  DIRNAME  as  well  as  the  current  working
              directory.  This  option  can  be  specified more than once; buy
              default we only look at the current working directory.

              Only include files if their full path matches the given  regular

              Exclude  files  if  their  full  patch matches the given regular

              Fail if duplicate units are found.

              Select alternative annotation character. The default is '#'.

              This can be one of 83, 95 (the default) or 2005.

       -index=FILE_SPEC, -noindexfile
              The index file to generate, by default this is ROOT_FILE.idx.

       -meta=FILE_SPEC, -nometafile
              The metafile to generate, by default this is ROOT_FILE.smf.

              Produce 'relative' or 'full' pathnames. By  default  we  produce
              full pathnames.


       Please  note  that  the  regular  expression  syntax  used by SPARKMake
       differs from both POSIX and Perl regular expressions. Please also  take
       care  to appropriately escape anythign that your shell might replace or
       expand (such as * or ?). The characters '{' and '}' are not allowed  to
       appear in any regular expression.

       reg_exp = term

       term = elmt | elmt elmt ... | * | ? | [char char ...] | [char - char]

       elmt = nchr | [nchr nchr ...] | [^ nchr nchr ...] | [nchr - nchr] | . |
       ( reg_exp )

       The * has  special  meaning;  it  matches  any  string  of  0  or  more
       characters.   Note  that  this  differs  from  POSIX  regex  where  the
       equivalent would be '.*'.

       The special characters ? and . have the same meaning,  they  match  any
       character.  Thus,  ?  does not hold the same meaning it does in a POSIX
       regular expression.

       The [ab...] notation means the usual: match any character listed.

       The [a-f] notation means the usual: match any character  in  the  given

       The  [^a-f]  notation  means  the usual: match any character not in the
       given range.

       char can be any character, including special characters.  nchr  can  be
       any  character  except  '\',  '(', ')', '[', ']', '.', '*', '+', '?' or
       '^'. It is possible to specify such a special character by escaping  it
       with a backslash.
