Pre-built binaries for Linux and macOS on x86_64 are available alongside each release. We also have a script for downloading and installing pre-built versions:
/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://seq-lang.org/install.sh)"
This will install Seq in a new
.seq directory within your home directory.
seqc program can either directly run Seq source in JIT mode:
seqc run myprogram.seq
The default compilation and run mode is debug (
-debug). Compile and run with optimizations with the
seqc run -release myprogram.seq
seqc can also produce executables (ensure you have
clang installed, as it is used for linking):
# generate 'myprogram' executable seqc build -exe myprogram.seq # generate 'foo' executable seqc build -o foo myprogram.seq
seqc can produce object files:
# generate 'myprogram.o' object file seqc build -obj myprogram.seq # generate 'foo.o' object file seqc build -o foo.o myprogram.seq
seqc can produce LLVM IR:
# generate 'myprogram.ll' object file seqc build -llvm myprogram.seq # generate 'foo.ll' object file seqc build -o foo.ll myprogram.seq
seqc allows for compile-time definitions via the
-D flag. For example, in the following code:
from bio import * print Kmer[SEED_LEN]()
SEED_LEN can be specified on the command line as such:
seqc run -DSEED_LEN=10 myprogram.seq.
