Arguments

name

Is the name of the GCC compiler to use. It can include the path where the GCC compiler is located.

Default

OFF

The compiler uses the PATH setting to find the GCC compiler and resolve environment settings.

Description

This option lets you specify the name of the GCC compiler that should be used to set up the environment for C compilations. If you do not specify a path, the compiler will search the PATH settings for the compiler name you provide.

This option is helpful when you are referencing a non-standard GCC installation, or you have multiple GCC installations on your system. The compiler will match GCC version values to the GCC compiler you specify.

The C++ equivalent to option -gcc-name is -gxx-name.

IDE Equivalent

Visual Studio: None

Eclipse: Preprocessor > Nonstandard gcc Installation

Alternate Options

None

Example

If the following option is specified, the compiler looks for the GCC compiler named foobar in the PATH setting:

-gcc-name=foobar

If the following option is specified, the compiler looks for the GCC compiler named foobar in the path specified:

-gcc-name=/a/b/foobar
