PIX(1) BSD General Commands Manual PIX(1)NAMEpix — Pascal interpreter and executor
SYNOPSISpix [-blnpstuwz] [-i name ...] name.p [argument ...]
Pix is a `load and go' version of Pascal which combines the functions of
the interpreter code translator pi and the executor px. It uses pi to
translate the program in the file name.p and, if there were no fatal
errors during translation, causes the resulting interpreter code to be
executed by px with the specified arguments. A temporary file is used
for the object code; the file obj is neither created nor destroyed.
