Specifying Alternate Tools and Paths

Use the
Qlocation
option to specify an alternate path for a tool. This option accepts two arguments using the following syntax:
Qlocation Syntax
# (Linux*
and
macOS*
)
-Qlocation
,
tool
,
path
# (Windows*)
/Qlocation
,
tool
,
path
where
tool
designates which compilation tool is associated with the alternate
path
.
tool
Description
cpp
Specifies the compiler front-end preprocessor.
c
Specifies the C++ compiler.
asm
Specifies the assembler.
link
Specifies the linker.
Use the
Qoption
option to pass an option specified by
optlist
to a
tool
, where
optlist
is a comma-separated list of options. The syntax for this command is:
Qoption Syntax
# (Linux*
and
macOS*
)
-Qoption
,
tool
,
optlist
# (Windows*)
/Qoption
,
tool
,
optlist
where
tool
designates which compilation tool receives the
optlist
.
tool
Description
cpp
Specifies the compiler front-end preprocessor.
c
Specifies the C++ compiler.
asm
Specifies the assembler.
link
Specifies the linker.
optlist
indicates one or more valid argument strings for the designated program. If the argument is a command-line option, you must include the hyphen. If the argument contains a space or tab character, the entire argument must be enclosed in quotation characters (

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors.
