lc - LIL compiler
lc [ -c ] [ -p ] [ -P ] file ...
Lc is the UNIX LIL compiler. It accepts three types of
Arguments whose names end with `.l' are taken to be LIL
source programs; they are compiled, and each object program
is left on the file whose name is that of the source with
`.o' subsituted for `.l'. The `.o' file is normally
deleted, however, if a single LIL program is compiled and
loaded all at one go.
The following flags are interpreted by lc.
-c Suppress the loading phase of the compilation, and
force an object file to be produced even if only one
program is compiled.
-p if loading takes place, replace the standard startup
routine by one which automatically calls the monitor
subroutine (III) at the start and arranges to write out
a mon.out file at normal termination of execution of
the object program. An execution profile can then be
generated by use of prof (I).
-P Run only the string preprocessor on the named LIL
programs, and leave the output on corresponding files
Other arguments are taken to be object programs or perhaps
libraries of routines. These programs, together with the
results of any compilations specified, are loaded (in the
order given) to produce an executable program with the name
file.l input file

/lib/mcrt0.o runtime startoff for monitoring.
/lib/libc.a builtin functions, etc.
