3.6 Options Controlling Objective-C Dialect

This section describes the command-line options that are only meaningful for Objective-C programs; but you can also use most of the GNU compiler options regardless of what language your program is in. For example, you might compile a file some_class.m like this:

gcc -g -fgnu-runtime -O -c some_class.m

In this example, only `-fgnu-runtime' is an option meant only for Objective-C programs; you can use the other options with any language supported by GCC.

Here is a list of options that are only for compiling Objective-C programs:

Use class-name as the name of the class to instantiate for each literal string specified with the syntax @"...". The default class name is NXConstantString.

Generate object code compatible with the standard GNU Objective-C runtime. This is the default for most types of systems.

Generate output compatible with the NeXT runtime. This is the default for NeXT-based systems, including Darwin and Mac OS X.

Dump interface declarations for all classes seen in the source file to a file named `sourcename.decl'.

Do not warn if methods required by a protocol are not implemented in the class adopting it.

Warn if a selector has multiple methods of different types defined.
