Compiler Options

For a list of compiler options, enter

% flang -help

The Flang compiler supports accepts all clang 4.0 compiler options and supports many, as well as the following flang-specific compiler options:

-noFlangLibs          Do not link against Flang libraries
-mp                   Enable OpenMP and link with with OpenMP library libomp
-nomp                 Do not link with OpenMP library libomp
-Mbackslash           Treat backslash character like a C-style escape character
-Mno-backslash        Treat backslash like any other character
-Mbyteswapio          Swap byte-order for unformatted input/output
-Mfixed               Assume fixed-format source
-Mextend              Allow source lines up to 132 characters
-Mfreeform            Assume free-format source
-Mpreprocess          Run preprocessor for Fortran files
-Mrecursive           Generate code to allow recursive subprograms
-Mstandard            Check standard conformance
-Msave                Assume all variables have SAVE attribute
-module               path to module file (-I also works)
-Mallocatable=95      Select Fortran 95 semantics for assignments to allocatable objects (Default)
-Mallocatable=03      Select Fortran 03 semantics for assignments to allocatable objects
-static-flang-libs    Link using static Flang libraries
-M[no]daz             Treat denormalized numbers as zero
-M[no]flushz          Set SSE to flush-to-zero mode
-Mcache_align         Align large objects on cache-line boundaries
-M[no]fprelaxed       This option is ignored
-fdefault-integer-8   Treat INTEGER and LOGICAL as INTEGER*8 and LOGICAL*8
-fdefault-real-8      Treat REAL as REAL*8
-i8                   Treat INTEGER and LOGICAL as INTEGER*8 and LOGICAL*8
-r8                   Treat REAL as REAL*8
-fno-fortran-main     Don't link in Fortran main
