4.5 Diagnostics for pragma compatibility

Older armcc compiler versions supported many pragmas which are not supported by armclang, but which could change the semantics of code. When armclang encounters these pragmas, it generates diagnostic messages.

The following table shows which diagnostics are generated for each pragma type, and the diagnostic group to which that diagnostic belongs. armclang generates diagnostics as follows:

  • Errors indicate use of an armcc pragma which could change the semantics of code.
  • Warnings indicate use of any other armcc pragma which is ignored by armclang.
  • Pragmas other than those listed are silently ignored.

In addition to the above diagnostic groups, there are the following additional diagnostic groups:

Contains all of the above diagnostic groups.
Contains diagnostics about pragmas which are not known to armclang, and are not in the above table.
Contains all pragma-related diagnostics, including armcc-pragmas and unknown-pragmas.

Any non-fatal armclang diagnostic group can be ignored, upgraded, or downgraded using the following command-line options:

Suppress a group of diagnostics:
Upgrade a group of diagnostics to warnings:
Upgrade a group of diagnostics to errors:
Downgrade a group of diagnostics to warnings:
