1.7 Language compliance

The compiler provides several command-line options for either enforcing or relaxing compliance with the available source languages.

Strict mode
In strict mode the compiler enforces compliance with the language standard relevant to the source language. For example, the use of //-style comments results in an error when compiling strict C90.
To compile in strict mode, use the command-line option --strict.


Compiling a .cpp file with the command-line option --strict compiles Standard C++.
