Arm Compiler 6 Documentation
Arm Compiler enables you to build applications for the Arm family of processors from C, C++, or assembly language source. Arm Compiler 6 supports Armv6-M, and all Armv7 and Armv8 architectures. The compiler is based on LLVM and Clang technology. LLVM is a set of open-source components that allow the implementation of optimizing compiler frameworks. Clang is a compiler front end for LLVM, providing support for the C and C++ programming languages.
