Specifies the root directory where headers and libraries are located.
- Specifies the local directory that contains copies of target libraries in the corresponding subdirectories.
- The compiler uses default settings to search for headers and libraries.
This option specifies the root directory where headers and libraries are located.
For example, if the headers and libraries are normally located in
--sysroot=/mydirwill cause the compiler to search in
/mydir/usr/libfor the headers and libraries.
This option is provided for compatibility with gcc.
Even though this option is not supported for a Windows-to-Windows native compiler, it is supported for a Windows-host to Linux-target compiler.
