/G (Optimize for Processor) Options

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Tells the compiler to optimize code generation for the specified processor.

/G{1|2}
/G1

Optimize for Itanium processor. Only available in the Itanium cross compiler or Itanium native compiler.

/G2

Optimize for Itanium2 processor (default between /G1 and /G2) Only available in the Itanium cross compiler or Itanium native compiler.

/G is available in all editions of Visual C++, but the compiler can perform more optimizations when /G is used with one of the /O compiler options. However, /O is not available in the Visual C++ standard edition.
