crw - compile report writer program
crw [-c] rfile [ ifile ]
Crw compiles the report writer source file, rfile, into an intermediate code for future interpretation by wtr(C-1). The -c flag causes only error checking to be done and all inter-mediate code output to be suppressed. The intermediate code is written to ifile, (a . rw default), unless the -c flag is specified.
Most of the errors from crw are self-explanatory. The most cryptic message is:
syntax error, on line xxxxx
Programs get syntax errors when they do not follow the proper rules for forming programs as spelled out in Chapter 10, Report Writer Programming Reference. If the source file has any errors, crw returns an exit code of 1.
