When you install the interpreter, a binary file is generated and copied into /usr/bin folder to be available from the command line.
In the next section the symbol
$ is used to denote the command line.
To run a program you can simply invoke
lincas with a filemane
$ lincas some_program.lc
LinCAS files ends with .lc extension, but it can be omitted.
Alternatively you ca use a shebang, that is adding as first line of your program the code
#! /usr/bin/lincas. Than you can simply run your file just typing on your command line
$ ./my_program.lc ensuring it has the executable privileges.
To see the possible options of the interpreter, type
$ lincas -h
$ lincas -hUsage : lincas [options] [filename] [arguments]options:-t --tokens Displays the tokens generated by the scanner(the program won't be executed)-a --ast Displays the AST generated by the parser-i --iseq Displays the compiled bytecode-n --no-exec Suppresses the execution of the program
