       diet - mangle gcc command line arguments


       diet [-v] [-Os] [normal gcc command line]


       diet  is a small wrapper around gcc or clang.  It will try to look at the command line you
       specify and try to mangle it so that gcc/clang will compile against the diet  libc  header
       files and link against the diet libc itself.

       diet  tries  to be smart for cross compiling.  If the first argument is not gcc but sparc-
       linux-gcc, diet will guess that  you  want  to  cross  compile  for  sparc  and  use  bin-
       sparc/dietlibc.a  instead  of  the dietlibc.a for your default architecture. This does not
       work yet for clang.

       The -v option will make diet print the modified gcc command line before executing it.

       When passed the -Os option before the gcc argument, diet will mangle the  gcc  options  to
       include the best known for-size optimization settings for the platform.


       ~/.diet/compiler  may  contain  compiler  options as you would specify them on the command
       line, i.e. separated by spaces.  Those will then be used instead of the built-in  defaults
       for diet -Os.
