tomc is the TOM compiler. It translates the file file containing TOM source, and outputs a file output_c which can subsequently be translated by the GNU C compiler, gcc(1), to produce an object file. The input file usually has the extension .t. tomc also produces a file output_info, called the info file, which contains information needed by the TOM resolver, tomr(1). If one or both of the output files is omitted, the default name is the basename of the input file, with the extension .c or .i, respectively.
tomc is being retired in favor of tesla.
