BINUTILS-CONFIG

Section: Gentoo (8)
Updated: Jan 2005
Index Return to Main Contents
 

NAME

binutils-config - manage active versions of the binutils programs  

DESCRIPTION

The binutils-config script allows you to switch between different versions of binutils when you have installed multiple copies (see USE=multislot). It also allows you to manage multiple cross-compiling targets simultaneously.

Remember, you may have one version of binutils active per CTARGET, and changing the version for one target has no bearing on any other. So changing an active cross-compiler will not break your native compiler (i.e. CHOST).  

SYNOPSIS

binutils-config [crufty options] PROFILE

binutils-config --get-current-profile [TARGET]

binutils-config --list-profiles

binutils-config --uninstall TARGET  

GENERIC OPTIONS

PROFILE
Change the system to use the specified binutils version. This may take the form of the list index number (the number shown on the left in the --list-profiles output), a full TARGET-VERSION (useful when working with cross-compilers), just a TARGET where the VERSION is picked from the active, or just a binutils VERSION where the TARGET is assumed to be the native HOST value.
TARGET
Similiar to PROFILE, but this is only the target and no version info (i.e. CTARGET or CHOST).
-c, --get-current-profile [TARGET]
Display the active profile for TARGET. If none is specified, the host system's TARGET will be shown (i.e. CHOST).
-l, --list-profiles
Show all the profiles that your system currently has installed and what versions are active. The active native version is noted with a bright green asterisk while the active cross-compiler versions are noted with a light blue asterisk.
-u, --uninstall TARGET
This is really for internal use only. Used to remove all traces of the TARGET binutils from your system.
 

CRUFTY OPTIONS

--gold
Change the default linker for the specified PROFILE to the [newer] gold linker. This only works if the binutils actually supports gold. Note that not all options supported by the bfd linker are supportd by the gold linker.
--bfd
Change the default linker for the specified PROFILE to the [older but stable] bfd linker. If unsure, stick to this one.
