When compiling assembly code the macro is not recognized and throwing up error.
[ 85%] Building ASM object BLE/nRF52/modules/CMakeFiles/MODULES.dir/nrfx/mdk/gcc_startup_nrf52.S.obj
D:XXXX\gcc_7_2_1\tools\bin\arm-none-eabi-as.exe: unrecognized option `-BOARD_PCA10040’
make: *** [BLE/nRF52/modules/CMakeFiles/MODULES.dir/nrfx/mdk/gcc_startup_nrf52.S.obj] Error 1
Here BOARD_PCA10040 is project macro which is given to assembly code like any other C file.
Macros are added using add_definitions() method.
Can someone help me where to look into fix the error.
I think add_compile_definitions is supported in latest version.
We are using 2.8.12 version in our project. The Cmake is picked from the configuration file which I am not able to edit.
I have installed the latest version 3.16 and I have generated the build file for the same
When I looked into flags.make file I still see these definitions as below
ASM_DEFINES = -DBOARD_PCA10040 -DCONFIG_GPIO_AS_PINRESET -DFLOAT_ABI_HARD
One thing I have observed
When I compile with Cmake version 3.16 and “MinGW Makefiles” generator
assembly code gets compiled without any issues (even when using add_definitions ())
But when I compile with 2.8 version cmake and “Eclipse CDT4 - Unix Makefiles” generator assembly code doesn’t get compiled.
I am not sure whether this issue is related to Generator!
