diet - mangle gcc command line arguments
diet [-v] [-Os] [normal gcc command line]
diet is a small wrapper around gcc. It will try to look at the command
line you specify and try to mangle it so that gcc will compile against
the diet libc header files and link against the diet libc itself.
diet tries to be smart for cross compiling. If the first argument is
not gcc but sparc-linux-gcc, diet will guess that you want to cross
compile for sparc and use bin-sparc/dietlibc.a instead of the
dietlibc.a for your default architecture.
The -v option will make diet print the modified gcc command line before
When passed the -Os option before the gcc argument, diet will mangle
the gcc options to include the best known for-size optimization
settings for the platform.
~/.diet/compiler may contain compiler options as you would specify them
on the command line, i.e. separated by spaces. Those will then be used
instead of the built-in defaults for diet -Os.
