Order of compiler command-line options
2.4 Order of compiler command-line options
In general, compiler command-line options can appear in any order in a single compiler invocation. However, the effects of some options depend on the order they appear in the command line and how they are combined with other related options.
The compiler enables you to use multiple options even where these might conflict. This means that you can append new options to an existing command line, for example, in a makefile or a via file.
Where options override previous options on the same command line, the last option specified always takes precedence. For example:
armcc -O1 -O2 -Ospace -Otime ...
is executed by the compiler as:
armcc -O2 -Otime
You can use the environment variable
