CcToolchainInfo

Information about the C++ compiler being used.

all_files

depset CcToolchainInfo.all_files

Returns all toolchain files (so they can be passed to actions using this toolchain as inputs).

built_in_include_directories

list CcToolchainInfo.built_in_include_directories

Returns the list of built-in directories of the compiler.

compiler

string CcToolchainInfo.compiler

C++ compiler. May return None.

cpu

string CcToolchainInfo.cpu

Target CPU of the C++ toolchain. May return None.

dynamic_runtime_lib

depset CcToolchainInfo.dynamic_runtime_lib(feature_configuration)

Returns the files from `dynamic_runtime_lib` attribute (so they can be passed to actions using this toolchain as inputs). The caller can check whether the feature_configuration enables `static_link_cpp_runtimes` feature (if not, neither `static_runtime_lib` nor `dynamic_runtime_lib` have to be used), and use `static_runtime_lib` if static linking mode is active.

Parameters

Parameter Description
feature_configuration

Feature configuration to be queried.

libc

string CcToolchainInfo.libc

libc version string. May return None.

needs_pic_for_dynamic_libraries

bool CcToolchainInfo.needs_pic_for_dynamic_libraries(feature_configuration)

Returns true if this rule's compilations should apply -fPIC, false otherwise. Determines if we should apply -fPIC for this rule's C++ compilations depending on the C++ toolchain and presence of `--force_pic` Bazel option.

Parameters

Parameter Description
feature_configuration

Feature configuration to be queried.

static_runtime_lib

depset CcToolchainInfo.static_runtime_lib(feature_configuration)

Returns the files from `static_runtime_lib` attribute (so they can be passed to actions using this toolchain as inputs). The caller should check whether the feature_configuration enables `static_link_cpp_runtimes` feature (if not, neither `static_runtime_lib` nor `dynamic_runtime_lib` should be used), and use `dynamic_runtime_lib` if dynamic linking mode is active.

Parameters

Parameter Description
feature_configuration

Feature configuration to be queried.

sysroot

string CcToolchainInfo.sysroot

Returns the sysroot to be used. If the toolchain compiler does not support different sysroots, or the sysroot is the same as the default sysroot, then this method returns None. May return None.

target_gnu_system_name

string CcToolchainInfo.target_gnu_system_name

The GNU System Name. May return None.

to_json

string CcToolchainInfo.to_json()

Creates a JSON string from the struct parameter. This method only works if all struct elements (recursively) are strings, ints, booleans, other structs, a list of these types or a dictionary with string keys and values of these types. Quotes and new lines in strings are escaped. Examples:
struct(key=123).to_json()
# {"key":123}

struct(key=True).to_json()
# {"key":true}

struct(key=[1, 2, 3]).to_json()
# {"key":[1,2,3]}

struct(key='text').to_json()
# {"key":"text"}

struct(key=struct(inner_key='text')).to_json()
# {"key":{"inner_key":"text"}}

struct(key=[struct(inner_key=1), struct(inner_key=2)]).to_json()
# {"key":[{"inner_key":1},{"inner_key":2}]}

struct(key=struct(inner_key=struct(inner_inner_key='text'))).to_json()
# {"key":{"inner_key":{"inner_inner_key":"text"}}}

to_proto

string CcToolchainInfo.to_proto()

Creates a text message from the struct parameter. This method only works if all struct elements (recursively) are strings, ints, booleans, other structs or dicts or lists of these types. Quotes and new lines in strings are escaped. Struct keys are iterated in the sorted order. Examples:
struct(key=123).to_proto()
# key: 123

struct(key=True).to_proto()
# key: true

struct(key=[1, 2, 3]).to_proto()
# key: 1
# key: 2
# key: 3

struct(key='text').to_proto()
# key: "text"

struct(key=struct(inner_key='text')).to_proto()
# key {
#   inner_key: "text"
# }

struct(key=[struct(inner_key=1), struct(inner_key=2)]).to_proto()
# key {
#   inner_key: 1
# }
# key {
#   inner_key: 2
# }

struct(key=struct(inner_key=struct(inner_inner_key='text'))).to_proto()
# key {
#    inner_key {
#     inner_inner_key: "text"
#   }
# }

struct(foo={4: 3, 2: 1}).to_proto()
# foo: {
#   key: 4
#   value: 3
# }
# foo: {
#   key: 2
#   value: 1
# }
