NAME

       gccgo - A GCC-based compiler for the Go language

SYNOPSIS

       gccgo [-c|-S]
             [-g] [-pg] [-Olevel]
             [-Idir...] [-Ldir...]
             [-o outfile] infile...

       Only the most useful options are listed here; see below for the remainder.

DESCRIPTION

       The gccgo command is a frontend to gcc and supports many of the same options.    This
       manual only documents the options specific to gccgo.

       The gccgo command may be used to compile Go source code into an object file, link a
       collection of object files together, or do both in sequence.

       Go source code is compiled as packages.  A package consists of one or more Go source
       files.  All the files in a single package must be compiled together, by passing all the
       files as arguments to gccgo.  A single invocation of gccgo may only compile a single
       package.

       One Go package may "import" a different Go package.  The imported package must have
       already been compiled; gccgo will read the import data directly from the compiled package.
       When this package is later linked, the compiled form of the package must be included in
       the link command.

OPTIONS

       -Idir
           Specify a directory to use when searching for an import package at compile time.

       -Ldir
           When linking, specify a library search directory, as with gcc.

       -fgo-prefix=string
           Go permits a single program to include more than one package with the same name.  This
           option is required to make this work with gccgo.  The argument to this option may be
           any string.  Each package with the same name must use a distinct -fgo-prefix option.
           The argument is typically the full path under which the package will be installed, as
           that must obviously be unique.

       -frequire-return-statement
       -fno-require-return-statement
           By default gccgo will warn about functions which have one or more return parameters
           but lack an explicit "return" statement.  This warning may be disabled using
           -fno-require-return-statement.
