Expand description

Optional aspects of a target specification.

This has an implementation of Default, see each field for what the default is. In general, these try to take “minimal defaults” that don’t assume anything about the runtime they run in.

TargetOptions as a separate structure is mostly an implementation detail of Target construction, all its fields logically belong to Target and available from Target through Deref impls.

Whether the target is built-in or loaded from a custom target specification.

§endian: Endian

Used as the target_endian cfg variable. Defaults to little endian.

§c_int_width: Cow<'static, str>

Width of c_int type. Defaults to “32”.

§os: Cow<'static, str>

OS name to use for conditional compilation (target_os). Defaults to “none”. “none” implies a bare metal target without std library. A couple of targets having std also use “unknown” as an os value, but they are exceptions.

§env: Cow<'static, str>

Environment name to use for conditional compilation (target_env). Defaults to “”.

§abi: Cow<'static, str>

ABI name to distinguish multiple ABIs on the same OS and architecture. For instance, "eabi" or "eabihf". Defaults to “”.

Vendor name to use for conditional compilation (target_vendor). Defaults to “unknown”.

§linker: Option<Cow<'static, str>>

Linker to invoke

§linker_flavor: LinkerFlavor

Default linker flavor used if -C linker-flavor or -C linker are not passed on the command line. Defaults to LinkerFlavor::Gnu(Cc::Yes, Lld::No).

§linker_flavor_json: LinkerFlavorCli§lld_flavor_json: LldFlavor§linker_is_gnu_json: bool§pre_link_objects: CrtObjects

Objects to link before and after all other object code.

§post_link_objects: CrtObjects§pre_link_objects_self_contained: CrtObjects

Linker arguments that are passed before any user-defined libraries.

§pre_link_args_json: LinkArgsCli§late_link_args: LinkArgs

Linker arguments that are unconditionally passed after any user-defined but before post-link objects. Standard platform libraries that should be always be linked to, usually go here.

§late_link_args_json: LinkArgsCli§late_link_args_dynamic: LinkArgs

Linker arguments used in addition to late_link_args if at least one Rust dependency is dynamically linked.

§late_link_args_dynamic_json: LinkArgsCli§late_link_args_static: LinkArgs

Linker arguments used in addition to late_link_args if all Rust dependencies are statically linked.

§late_link_args_static_json: LinkArgsCli§post_link_args: LinkArgs

Linker arguments that are unconditionally passed after any user-defined libraries.

§post_link_args_json: LinkArgsCli§link_script: Option<Cow<'static, str>>

Optional link script applied to dylib and executable crate types. This is a string containing the script, not a path. Can only be applied to linkers where linker flavor matches LinkerFlavor::Gnu(..).

§link_env: Cow<'static, [(Cow<'static, str>, Cow<'static, str>)]>

Environment variables to be set for the linker invocation.

§link_env_remove: Cow<'static, [Cow<'static, str>]>

§dll_tls_export: bool

Whether dynamic linking can export TLS globals. Defaults to true.

§only_cdylib: bool

Relocation model to use in object file. Corresponds to llc -relocation-model=$relocation_model. Defaults to Pic.

§code_model: Option<CodeModel>

Code model to use. Corresponds to llc -code-model=$code_model. Defaults to None which means “inherited from the base LLVM target”.

§tls_model: TlsModel

TLS model to use. Options are “global-dynamic” (default), “local-dynamic”, “initial-exec” and “local-exec”. This is similar to the -ftls-model option in GCC/Clang.

§disable_redzone: bool

Do not emit code that uses the “red zone”, if the ABI has one. Defaults to false.

§frame_pointer: FramePointer

Frame pointer mode for this target. Defaults to MayOmit.

§families: Cow<'static, [Cow<'static, str>]>

Values of the target_family cfg set for this target.

Common options are: “unix”, “windows”. Defaults to no families.


§abi_return_struct_as_int: bool

Whether the target toolchain’s ABI supports returning small structs as an integer.

§is_like_aix: bool

Whether the target toolchain is like AIX’s. Linker options on AIX are special and it uses XCOFF as binary format. Defaults to false.

§is_like_osx: bool

Whether the target toolchain is like macOS’s. Only useful for compiling against iOS/macOS, in particular running dsymutil and some other stuff like -dead_strip. Defaults to false. Also indiates whether to use Apple-specific ABI changes, such as extending function parameters to 32-bits.

§is_like_solaris: bool

Whether the target toolchain is like Solaris’s. Only useful for compiling against Illumos/Solaris, as they have a different set of linker flags. Defaults to false.

§is_like_windows: bool

Whether the target is like Windows. This is a combination of several more specific properties represented as a single flag:

  • The target uses a Windows ABI,
  • uses PE/COFF as a format for object code,
  • uses Windows-style dllexport/dllimport for shared libraries,
  • uses import libraries and .def files for symbol exports,
  • executables support setting a subsystem.
§is_like_msvc: bool

Whether the target is like MSVC. This is a combination of several more specific properties represented as a single flag:

  • The target has all the properties from is_like_windows (for in-tree targets “is_like_msvc ⇒ is_like_windows” is ensured by a unit test),
  • has some MSVC-specific Windows ABI properties,
  • uses a link.exe-like linker,
  • uses CodeView/PDB for debuginfo and natvis for its visualization,
  • uses SEH-based unwinding,
  • supports control flow guard mechanism.
§is_like_wasm: bool

Whether a target toolchain is like WASM.

§is_like_android: bool

Whether a target toolchain is like Android, implying a Linux kernel and a Bionic libc

§default_dwarf_version: u32

Default supported version of DWARF on this platform. Useful because some platforms (osx, bsd) only want up to DWARF2.

§allows_weak_linkage: bool

The MinGW toolchain has a known issue that prevents it from correctly handling COFF object files with more than 215 sections. Since each weak symbol needs its own COMDAT section, weak linkage implies a large number sections that easily exceeds the given limit for larger codebases. Consequently we want a way to disallow weak linkage on some platforms.

§has_rpath: bool

Whether the linker support rpaths or not. Defaults to false.

§no_default_libraries: bool

Whether to disable linking to the default libraries, typically corresponds to -nodefaultlibs. Defaults to true.

§position_independent_executables: bool

Dynamically linked executables can be compiled as position independent if the default relocation model of position independent code is not changed. This is a requirement to take advantage of ASLR, as otherwise the functions in the executable are not randomized and can be used during an exploit of a vulnerability in any code.

§static_position_independent_executables: bool

Executables that are both statically linked and position-independent are supported.

§plt_by_default: bool

Determines if the target always requires using the PLT for indirect library calls or not. This controls the default value of the -Z plt flag.

§relro_level: RelroLevel

Either partial, full, or off. Full RELRO makes the dynamic linker resolve all symbols at startup and marks the GOT read-only before starting the program, preventing overwriting the GOT.

§archive_format: Cow<'static, str>

Format that archives should be emitted in. This affects whether we use LLVM to assemble an archive or fall back to the system linker, and currently only “gnu” is used to fall into LLVM. Unknown strings cause the system linker to be used.

§allow_asm: bool

Is asm!() allowed? Defaults to true.

§main_needs_argc_argv: bool

Whether the runtime startup code requires the main function be passed argc and argv values.

§has_thread_local: bool

Flag indicating whether #thread_local is available for this target.

§obj_is_bitcode: bool

This is mainly for easy compatibility with emscripten. If we give emcc .o files that are actually .bc files it will ‘just work’.

§forces_embed_bitcode: bool

Whether the target requires that emitted object code includes bitcode.

§bitcode_llvm_cmdline: Cow<'static, str>

Content of the LLVM cmdline section associated with embedded bitcode.

§min_atomic_width: Option<u64>

Don’t use this field; instead use the .min_atomic_width() method.

§max_atomic_width: Option<u64>

Don’t use this field; instead use the .max_atomic_width() method.

§atomic_cas: bool

Whether the target supports atomic CAS operations natively

§panic_strategy: PanicStrategy

Panic strategy: “unwind” or “abort”

§crt_static_allows_dylibs: bool

Whether or not linking dylibs to a static CRT is allowed.

§crt_static_default: bool

Whether or not the CRT is statically linked by default.

§crt_static_respected: bool

Whether or not crt-static is respected by the compiler (or is a no-op).

§stack_probes: StackProbeType

The implementation of stack probes to use.

§min_global_align: Option<u64>

The minimum alignment for global symbols.

§default_codegen_units: Option<u64>

Default number of codegen units to use in debug mode

§trap_unreachable: bool

Whether to generate trap instructions in places where optimization would otherwise produce control flow that falls through into unrelated memory.

§requires_lto: bool

This target requires everything to be compiled with LTO to emit a final executable, aka there is no native linker for this target.

§singlethread: bool

This target has no support for threads.

§no_builtins: bool

Whether library functions call lowering/optimization is disabled in LLVM for this target unconditionally.

§default_hidden_visibility: bool

The default visibility for symbols in this target should be “hidden” rather than “default”.

This value typically shouldn’t be accessed directly, but through the rustc_session::Session::default_hidden_visibility method, which allows rustc users to override this setting using cmdline flags.

§emit_debug_gdb_scripts: bool

Whether a .debug_gdb_scripts section will be added to the output object file

§requires_uwtable: bool

Whether or not to unconditionally uwtable attributes on functions, typically because the platform needs to unwind for things like stack unwinders.

§default_uwtable: bool

Whether or not to emit uwtable attributes on functions if -C force-unwind-tables is not specified and uwtable is not required on this target.

§simd_types_indirect: bool

Whether or not SIMD types are passed by reference in the Rust ABI, typically required if a target can be compiled with a mixed set of target features. This is true by default, and false for targets like wasm32 where the whole program either has simd or not.

§limit_rdylib_exports: bool

Pass a list of symbol which should be exported in the dylib to the linker.

§override_export_symbols: Option<Cow<'static, [Cow<'static, str>]>>

If set, have the linker export exactly these symbols, instead of using the usual logic to figure this out from the crate itself.

§merge_functions: MergeFunctions

Determines how or whether the MergeFunctions LLVM pass should run for this target. Either “disabled”, “trampolines”, or “aliases”. The MergeFunctions pass is generally useful, but some targets may need to opt out. The default is “aliases”.

Workaround for:

§mcount: Cow<'static, str>

Use platform dependent mcount function

§llvm_mcount_intrinsic: Option<Cow<'static, str>>

Use LLVM intrinsic for mcount function name

§llvm_abiname: Cow<'static, str>

LLVM ABI name, corresponds to the ‘-mabi’ parameter available in multilib C compilers

§relax_elf_relocations: bool

Whether or not RelaxElfRelocation flag will be passed to the linker

§llvm_args: Cow<'static, [Cow<'static, str>]>

Additional arguments to pass to LLVM, similar to the -C llvm-args codegen option.

§use_ctors_section: bool

Whether to use legacy .ctors initialization hooks rather than .init_array. Defaults to false (uses .init_array).

§eh_frame_header: bool

Whether the linker is instructed to add a GNU_EH_FRAME ELF header used to locate unwinding information is passed (only has effect if the linker is ld-like).

§has_thumb_interworking: bool

Is true if the target is an ARM architecture using thumb v1 which allows for thumb and arm interworking.

§debuginfo_kind: DebuginfoKind

Which kind of debuginfo is used by this target?

§split_debuginfo: SplitDebuginfo

How to handle split debug information, if at all. Specifying None has target-specific meaning.

§supported_split_debuginfo: Cow<'static, [SplitDebuginfo]>

Which kinds of split debuginfo are supported by the target?

§supported_sanitizers: SanitizerSet

The sanitizers supported by this target

Note that the support here is at a codegen level. If the machine code with sanitizer enabled can generated on this target, but the necessary supporting libraries are not distributed with the target, the sanitizer should still appear in this list for the target.

§default_adjusted_cabi: Option<Abi>

If present it’s a default value to use for adjusting the C ABI.

§c_enum_min_bits: Option<u64>

Minimum number of bits in #[repr(C)] enum. Defaults to the size of c_int

§generate_arange_section: bool

Whether or not the DWARF .debug_aranges section should be generated.

§supports_stack_protector: bool

Whether the target supports stack canary checks. true by default, since this is most common among tier 1 and tier 2 targets.

§entry_name: Cow<'static, str>

The name of entry function. Default value is “main”

§entry_abi: Conv

The ABI of entry function. Default value is Conv::C, i.e. C call convention

§supports_xray: bool

Whether the target supports XRay instrumentation.
