Is there a syntax checking option only ?
« on: January 24, 2020, 07:23:02 pm »
Hello,

I'd like FPC to only do a syntax check on some source files (full parse but, no code generation.)  I didn't see a command line option that would tell FPC to only do syntax checking and, I'm wondering if I missed it or if the option doesn't exist.

That's my question: is there a command line switch that instructs FPC to do syntax checking only ?

Thank you for your help.

There is no such option.

I usually use -s to achieve such purpose. The option doesn't do syntax check but makes FPC does not call assembler and linker which is pretty much what syntax check does.

Good suggestion, thank you.
