       diameterc - diameterc [<options>] <file>

       The  diameterc  utility  is  used to compile a diameter dictionary file
       into Erlang source. The resulting source implements the interface diam-
       eter required to encode and decode the dictionary's messages and AVPs.

       The  module  diameter_make(3)  provides an alternate compilation inter-

         diameterc [<options>] <file>:
           Compile a single dictionary file to Erlang  source.  Valid  options
           are as follows.

           -i <dir>:
             Prepend the specified directory to the code path. Use to point at
             beam files compiled from inherited dictionaries, @inherits  in  a
             dictionary file creating a beam dependency, not an erl/hrl depen-

             Multiple -i options can be specified.

           -o <dir>:
             Write generated source to the specified  directory.  Defaults  to
             the current working directory.


             Suppress erl and hrl generation, respectively.

           --name <name>:

           --prefix <prefix>:
             Transform  the input dictionary before compilation, setting @name
             or @prefix to the specified string.

           --inherits <arg>:
             Transform the  input  dictionary  before  compilation,  appending
             @inherits of the specified string.

             Two forms of --inherits have special meaning:

           --inherits -
           --inherits Prev/Mod

             The  first  has the effect of clearing any previous inherits, the
             second of replacing a previous inherits of Prev to  one  of  Mod.
             This  allows  the semantics of the input dictionary to be changed
             without modifying the file itself.

             Multiple --inherits options can be specified.

       Returns 0 on success, non-zero on failure.
