NAME¶capnp - compiler for Cap'n Proto data interchange format definition files
capnp [<options>] <command> [<args>]
capnp [--help | --version]
DESCRIPTION¶This manual page documents briefly the capnp command.
It was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
capnp is wrapper for various tools used to manipulate the Cap'n Proto data interchange format. These tools include a definition file compiler, a C++ backend, a decoder for converting Cap'n Proto messages to text and a generator for Cap'n Proto definition IDs.
OPTIONS¶The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
compile¶Compile Cap'n Proto schema files & generate corresponding source code in one or more languages.
decode¶Decodes one or more encoded Cap'n Proto messages as text. Messages are read from standard input and by default are expected to be in standard Cap'n Proto serialization format.
id¶Generates a unique identifier for Cap'n Proto schema files.
SEE ALSO¶More documentation about Cap'n Proto is available online at http://capnproto.org.
