Option '-TC'

Just installed Intel's oneAPI and it's compiler dpcpp.exe.

Trying it to compile a C-project of mine seems impossible w/o a major rewrite.

Seems to me it only supports C++ even when using "dpcpp -TC ...". Rather disappointing.

 

Many warnings on stuff like "char *p = malloc (len);" causing

error: cannot initialize a variable of type 'char *' with an rvalue of type 'void *'

 

So what's the option "-TC" really for?

 

Edit: Switching to icx.exe did the trick.

Hi,


Thank you for posting in Intel Communities.


>> So what's the option "-TC" really for?


This option tells the compiler to process all source or unrecognized file types as C source files.


For more information, please refer to the link mentioned below.

Could you please provide us with a sample reproducer along with the compiler version being used so that we can investigate your issue from our end.


Thanks and Regards,

Here is a simple example GNU-makefile (called dpcpp-test.mak) or attached:

------------- 8< --- 8< -----------

CFLAGS = -MD -TC

all: dpcpp-test.exe

dpcpp-test.exe: dpcpp-test.obj
  xilink -out:dpcpp-test.exe $<

dpcpp-test.obj: dpcpp-test.c
  dpcpp $(CFLAGS) -Fo$@ $<

dpcpp-test.c: dpcpp-test.mak
  $(info Generating $@)
  $(file > $@,$(dpcpp-test_C))

 

define dpcpp-test_C
  //
  // Generated file. DO NOT EDIT!
  //
  #include <stdio.h>
  #include <stdlib.h>
  int main (void)
  {
    char *p = malloc(1000);

    printf ("p: 0x%p\n", p);
    p ? free(p) : ((void)0);
    return (0);
  }
endef

------------- 8< --- 8< -----------

Issuing make -f dpcpp-test.mak, gives:

 

Generating dpcpp-test.c
dpcpp -MD -TC -Fodpcpp-test.obj dpcpp-test.c
dpcpp-test.c(8,11): error: cannot initialize a variable of type 'char *' with an rvalue of type 'void *'
char *p = malloc(1000);
^ ~~~~~~~~~~~~
1 error generated.

 

Enough said.

Hi,


DPC++ will support only c++ code from c++ 17 and onwards. Hence -TC option does not work.

It is working with icx and icx in windows works for both c as well as c++ code. So, it is behaving correctly.


Thanks and Regards,

Ditipriya.

A dpcpp -? lists it as an valid option.  Time to clean-up this options mess?

Hi,

 

Could you please confirm the OS you're using?

 

For windows, /TC is a valid option, however for linux, -TC is not listed as a valid option.

 

Thanks and Regards,

Ditipriya.
