Arm Compiler armclang Reference Guide : -E


Executes the preprocessor step only.

By default, output from the preprocessor is sent to the standard output stream and can be redirected to a file using standard UNIX and MS-DOS notation.

You can also use the -o option to specify a file for the preprocessed output.

By default, comments are stripped from the output. Use the -C option to keep comments in the preprocessed output.


Use -E -dD to generate interleaved macro definitions and preprocessor output:

armclang --target=aarch64-arm-none-eabi -mcpu=cortex-a53 -E -dD source.c > raw.c

Use -E -dM to list all the macros that are defined at the end of the translation unit, including the predefined macros:

armclang --target=arm-arm-none-eabi -mcpu=cortex-m3 -E -dM source.c
