--library_type=lib linker option

Selects the library to be used at link time.

--library_type= lib

Where lib can be one of:


Specifies that the full ARM® Compiler runtime libraries are selected at link time. This is the default.


Specifies that the C micro-library (microlib) is selected at link time.


Use this option:

  • When use of the libraries require more specialized optimizations.

  • With the linker to override all other --library_type options.


If you do not specify --library_type at link time and no object file specifies a preference, then the linker assumes --library_type=standardlib.
