Action name: SetupCompilerThis dialog box allows the user to specify the compiler used to create the program along with the memory model, default calling convention, ABI and other parameters.
Please note that while some combinations of the parameters are meaningless, IDA doesn't check them for validity. It is up to the user to specify a correct combination.
IDA tries to determine the correct values automatically.
The include directories are a list of directories that look for the standard C headers. This parameter is used during parsing C header files. The directories must be separated by ';' in MS Windows and ':' in Linux. The predefined macros field has the same format and is used similarly. Please note that IDA doesn't define any compiler-specific macros by default.
