Cmake/docs/3.21/envvar/asm dialect


This is a CMake Environment Variable. Its initial value is taken from the calling process environment.

Preferred executable for compiling a specific dialect of assembly language files. ASM<DIALECT> can be ASM, ASM_NASM (Netwide Assembler), ASM_MASM (Microsoft Assembler) or ASM-ATT (Assembler AT&T). Will only be used by CMake on the first configuration to determine ASM<DIALECT> compiler, after which the value for ASM<DIALECT> is stored in the cache as CMAKE_ASM_COMPILER. For subsequent configuration runs, the environment variable will be ignored in favor of CMAKE_ASM_COMPILER.


Options that are required to make the compiler work correctly can be included; they can not be changed.

$ export ASM="custom-compiler --arg1 --arg2"
