--reduce_paths, --no_reduce_paths

Enables or disables the elimination of redundant path name information in file paths.

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

--no_reduce_paths is the default.


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


This option is valid for 32-bit Windows systems only.
