csc -h produces this list for me, a detailed description might be
found in the manual or on the online copy:

>From your description I am not able to guess what you want to do.

To generate a "normal" executable with chicken from a scheme file
called "foo.scm" one would call csc like this:

$ csc foo.scm

to generate a binary "foo".

The -s switch is used to generate shared objects, usually used when
compiling modules as extensions. See for details on those.

I am not sure where you got the "-ss" switch from, where did you
find that and what did you intend to do?

Kind regards,

movement go on, and the condition of rest will gradually arise.
