--tool_variant

Use this option to identify the toolkit variant you are using when you have to manually configure your environment.

Syntax

--tool_variant=toolkit

Where:

toolkit

is the type of license to use. This corresponds to the prefix used by the license features in your license file up to the first '_' character. For example, if your license file contains a feature named ds5eval_compiler6 then specify the --tool_variant=ds5eval option.

When you run armlink within Eclipse, the provided DS-5 Command Prompt on Windows, or the suite_exec shell on Linux then all license managed components pick up the license and toolkit settings correctly.

If you use a different console then you must configure the tools manually. To do this:

  1. Set the environment variable ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE to point at your license file.

  2. Pass the --tool_variant=toolkit option on each invocation.

Note

You can set the environment variable ARMCOMPILER6_FROMELFOPT to pass this option automatically. For example, ARMCOMPILER6_FROMELFOPT=--tool_variant=ds5eval.

Failure to set either the license location or the --tool_variant option can result in an error of the following form:

error: License checkout for feature feature was denied...
