Re: target attributes, pragmas and preprocessor macros


Hi Kyrill,

Hi all,

Are target attributes supposed to redefine the preprocessor macros available?
For example, on aarch64 if the file is compiled with floating point support
the __ARM_FEATURE_FMA predefine is available. If the user adds to a function
a target attribute disabling floating point, then is __ARM_FEATURE_FMA supposed
to be undefined in the body of that function?

Looking at some backends, it seems that only #pragmas are supposed to have that effect,
but I just wanted to confirm.


yes they do, But careful, even the "inherited" macros should be redefined...

for instance for arm/thumb we can have something like:

#pragma GCC target ("thumb")

#ifndef __thumb__
#error "__thumb__ is not defined"
#endif

#ifdef __thumb2__
#ifndef __ARM_32BIT_STATE
#error  "__ARM_32BIT_STATE is not defined"
#endif
#else /* thumb1 */
#ifdef __ARM_32BIT_STATE
#error  "__ARM_32BIT_STATE is defined"
#endif
#endif /* thumb1 */

...

Thanks,
Kyrill


Cheers

Christian
