8.7 --arm

Targets the ARM instruction set. The compiler is permitted to generate both ARM and Thumb code, but recognizes that ARM code is preferred.


This option is not relevant for Thumb-only processors such as Cortex-M4, Cortex-M3, Cortex-M1, and Cortex-M0.


This is the default option for targets supporting the ARM instruction set.
