Via files are plain text files that contain command-line arguments
and options to ARM development tools. You can use via files with
all the ARM command-line tools, that is, you can specify a via file
from the command line using the
See the documentation for the individual tool for more information.
In general, you can use a via file to specify any command-line
option to a tool, including
--via. This means that
you can call multiple nested via files from within a via file.
When a tool that supports via files is invoked it:
Replaces the first specified
--viaargument with the sequence of argument words extracted from the via file, including recursively processing any nested
--viacommands in the via file.
Processes any subsequent
--viaarguments in the same way, in the order they are presented.
That is, via files are processed in the order you specify them, and each via file is processed completely including processing nested via files before processing the next via file.
