9.68 --library_type=lib

Selects the library to be used at link time.

Syntax

--library_type=lib
Where lib can be one of:
standardlib
Specifies that the full ARM® Compiler runtime libraries are selected at link time. This is the default.
microlib
Specifies that the C micro-library (microlib) is selected at link time.

Note

microlib is not supported for AArch64 state.

Usage

Use this option:
  • When use of the libraries require more specialized optimizations.
  • With the linker to override all other --library_type options.

Default

If you do not specify --library_type at link time and no object file specifies a preference, then the linker assumes --library_type=standardlib.
