gcc

Compile and link a program (GNU)


Note: We recommend you use qcc instead of invoking gcc directly. You can use the -V option to qcc to invoke gcc. For example:
qcc -Vgcc_ntomipsle my_file.c

Syntax:

gcc_variant [ option | filename ]...
g++_variant [ option | filename ]...

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:

The gcc_variant depends on the target platform, as follows:

Target platform: gcc_variant:
ARM ntoarm-gcc
MIPS ntomips-gcc
PowerPC ntoppc-gcc
SH4 ntosh-gcc
x86 ntox86-gcc

The g++_variant depends on the target platform, as follows:

Target platform: g++_variant:
ARM ntoarm-g++
MIPS ntomips-g++
PowerPC ntoppc-g++
SH4 ntosh-g++
x86 ntox86-g++

Note: If you use exceptions, you must link with the -lang-c++ option to qcc. This option is the default for QCC.

Description:

We recommend you use qcc or QCC instead of gcc to compile and link your programs.

For detailed documentation about gcc, see the GNU website at http://www.gnu.org/.


Note: If you have trouble using the default debug format (-gdwarf), switch to -gdwarf-2 or -gstabs.

Exit status:

0
Success.
33
A nonfatal compilation error was encountered.
34
A fatal compilation error was encountered.
35
