cc_common

Utilities for C++ compilation, linking, and command line generation.

action_is_enabled

bool cc_common.action_is_enabled(feature_configuration, action_name)

Returns True if given action_config is enabled in the feature configuration.

Parameters

Parameter Description
feature_configuration

FeatureConfiguration

Feature configuration to be queried.

action_name

Name of the action_config.

CcToolchainInfo

Provider cc_common.CcToolchainInfo

The key used to retrieve the provider that contains information about the C++ toolchain being used

configure_features

FeatureConfiguration cc_common.configure_features(cc_toolchain, requested_features=[], unsupported_features=[])

Creates a feature_configuration instance.

Parameters

Parameter Description
cc_toolchain

CcToolchainInfo

cc_toolchain for which we configure features.

requested_features

sequence

List of features to be enabled.

unsupported_features

sequence

List of features that are unsupported by the current rule.

create_cc_toolchain_config_info

CcToolchainConfigInfo cc_common.create_cc_toolchain_config_info(ctx, features=[], action_configs=[], artifact_name_patterns=[], cxx_builtin_include_directories=[], toolchain_identifier, host_system_name, target_system_name, target_cpu, target_libc, compiler, abi_version, abi_libc_version, tool_paths=[], make_variables=[], builtin_sysroot=None, cc_target_os=None)

Creates a CcToolchainConfigInfo provider

Parameters

Parameter Description
ctx

ctx

The rule context.

features

sequence

A list of features.

action_configs

sequence

A list of action_configs.

artifact_name_patterns

sequence

A list of artifact_name_patterns.

cxx_builtin_include_directories

sequence

Built-in include directories for C++ compilation. These should be the exact paths used by the compiler, and are generally relative to the exec root.

The paths used by the compiler can be determined by 'gcc -E -xc++ - -v'.

We currently use the C++ paths also for C compilation, which is safe as long as there are no name clashes between C++ and C header files.

Relative paths are resolved relative to the configuration file directory.

If the compiler has --sysroot support, then these paths should use %sysroot% rather than the include path, and specify the sysroot attribute in order to give bazel the information necessary to make the correct replacements.

toolchain_identifier

string

The unique identifier of the toolchain within the crosstool release. It must be possible to use this as a directory name in a path.

It has to match the following regex: [a-zA-Z_][\.\- \w]*

host_system_name

string

The system name which is required by the toolchain to run.

target_system_name

string

The GNU System Name.

target_cpu

string

The target architecture string.

target_libc

string

The libc version string (e.g. "glibc-2.2.2").

compiler

string

The compiler version string (e.g. "gcc-4.1.1").

abi_version

string

The abi in use, which is a gcc version. E.g.: "gcc-3.4"

abi_libc_version

string

The glibc version used by the abi we're using.

tool_paths

sequence

A list of tool_paths.

make_variables

sequence

A list of make_variables.

builtin_sysroot

string; or None

The built-in sysroot. If this attribute is not present, Bazel does not allow using a different sysroot, i.e. through the --grte_top option.

cc_target_os

string; or None

Internal purpose only, do not use.

create_compilation_context

CompilationContext cc_common.create_compilation_context(headers=unbound, system_includes=unbound, includes=unbound, quote_includes=unbound, defines=unbound)

Creates a CompilationContext.

Parameters

Parameter Description
headers

Set of headers needed to compile this target

system_includes

Set of search paths for header files referenced by angle brackets, i.e. #include . They can be either relative to the exec root or absolute. Usually passed with -isystem

includes

Set of search paths for header files referenced both by angle bracket and quotes.Usually passed with -I

quote_includes

Set of search paths for header files referenced by quotes, i.e. #include "foo/bar/header.h". They can be either relative to the exec root or absolute. Usually passed with -iquote

defines

Set of defines needed to compile this target. Each define is a string

create_compile_variables

Variables cc_common.create_compile_variables(cc_toolchain, feature_configuration, source_file=None, output_file=None, user_compile_flags=None, include_directories=None, quote_include_directories=None, system_include_directories=None, preprocessor_defines=None, use_pic=False, add_legacy_cxx_options=False)

Returns variables used for compilation actions.

Parameters

Parameter Description
cc_toolchain

CcToolchainInfo

cc_toolchain for which we are creating build variables.

feature_configuration

FeatureConfiguration

Feature configuration to be queried.

source_file

Optional source file for the compilation. Please prefer passing source_file here over appending it to the end of the command line generated from cc_common.get_memory_inefficient_command_line, as then it's in the power of the toolchain author to properly specify and position compiler flags.

output_file

Optional output file of the compilation. Please prefer passing output_file here over appending it to the end of the command line generated from cc_common.get_memory_inefficient_command_line, as then it's in the power of the toolchain author to properly specify and position compiler flags.

user_compile_flags

None; or sequence; or depset

List of additional compilation flags (copts). Passing depset is deprecated and will be removed by --incompatible_disable_depset_in_cc_user_flags flag.

include_directories

None; or depset

Depset of include directories.

quote_include_directories

None; or depset

Depset of quote include directories.

system_include_directories

None; or depset

Depset of system include directories.

preprocessor_defines

None; or depset

Depset of preprocessor defines.

use_pic

When true the compilation will generate position independent code.

add_legacy_cxx_options

When true the flags will contain options coming from legacy cxx_flag crosstool fields.

True when using linker, False when archiver. Caller is responsible for keeping this in sync with action name used (is_using_linker = True for linking executable or dynamic library, is_using_linker = False for archiving static library).

True when creating dynamic library, False when executable or static library. Caller is responsible for keeping this in sync with action name used. This field will be removed once b/65151735 is fixed.

When set to True, bazel will expose 'strip_debug_symbols' variable, which is usually used to use the linker to strip debug symbols from the output file.

When set to True flags coming from test_only_linker_flag crosstool fields will be included.This field will be removed once b/65151735 is fixed.

True when using static_linking_mode, False when using dynamic_linking_mode. Caller is responsible for keeping this in sync with 'static_linking_mode' and 'dynamic_linking_mode' features enabled on the feature configuration. This field will be removed once b/65151735 is fixed.
