This is very basic question Optioning cross compiler / cross - linker etc. calls for "prefix" and I use arm-linux-gnueabihf- OK - cross compiling between arm and linux. The arm architecture is armhf etc. In verbose output the "prefix" shows before gcc etc. Now it ask for "PATH" apparently for the arm-linux-gnueabihf-. I used /usr/bin/ and it works. BUT it also works when I DO NOT SPECIFY the PATH. Magic ? Or is there another parameter specifying the "PATH"? Cheers
Hello, I'm not sure if I understood you correctly. You ask why you can execute the cross-compiler from the command line without the full path to the compiler? This is because the shell searches for executable binaries in the directories that are listed in the environment variable PATH. You can view those directories using the command
If I misunderstood your question, then I'm sorry. Please speciefy your question in this case. Best regards, N.G.
