xcode llvm 5 1 clang error using -'ios,xcode,compiler-construction,llvm'
xcode llvm 5 1 clang error ¬†using -'ios,xcode,compiler-construction,llvm'
I am having no luck the last few days since Xcode 5.1 came out.
I keep getting this error on an old project that supports iOS 6.0:
clang: error: unknown argument: '-fno-obj-arc' [-Wunused-command-line-argument-hard-error-in-future]
clang: note: this will be a hard error (cannot be downgraded to a warning) in the future
Command /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/clang failed with exit code 1
There are not many posts about this on the internet and some suggestions seem to be to change your CFLAGS but I have no idea how to do that in Xcode.
Apple suggests this from their documents:
¬†¬†As of Apple LLVM compiler version 5.1 (clang-502) and later, the
¬†¬†optimization level -O4 no longer implies link time optimization (LTO).
¬†¬†In order to build with LTO explicitly use the -flto option in addition
¬†¬†to the optimization level flag. (15633276) The Apple LLVM compiler in
¬†¬†Xcode 5.1 treats unrecognized command-line options as errors. This
¬†¬†issue has been seen when building both Python native extensions and
¬†¬†Ruby Gems, where some invalid compiler options are currently
¬†¬†specified. Projects using invalid compiler options will need to be
¬†¬†changed to remove those options. To help ease that transition, the
¬†¬†compiler will temporarily accept an option to downgrade the error to a
¬†¬†Note: This option will not be supported in the future. To workaround
¬†¬†this issue, set the ARCHFLAGS environment variable to downgrade the
¬†¬†error to a warning. For example, you can install a Python native
¬†¬†$ARCHFLAGS=-Wno-error=unused-command-line-argument-hard-error-in-future easy_install ExtensionName
¬†¬†Similarly, you can install a Ruby Gem with:
¬†¬†$ARCHFLAGS=-Wno-error=unused-command-line-argument-hard-error-in-future gem install GemName 16214764 updated
How do I get this workaround? ¬†Obviously Apple has messed up because it should only be presenting me with a warning and not an error according to their documents.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. ¬†I can not build my app until this issue is rectified.
