--reduce_paths

This option enables the elimination of redundant pathname information in file paths. This option is valid for Windows systems only.

Windows systems impose a 260 character limit on file paths. Where relative pathnames exist whose absolute names expand to longer than 260 characters, you can use the --reduce_paths option to reduce absolute pathname length by matching up directories with corresponding instances of .. and eliminating the directory/.. sequences in pairs.

Note

ARM recommends that you avoid using long and deeply nested file paths, in preference to minimizing path lengths using the --reduce_paths option.
