Xilinx SDK - How to Change Compiler Options for BSP Code?


I need to change the compiler options for an applications BSP. 

For example, how can the code optimization level used by the compiler be changed?


Navigate to the BSP Settings (Right-click on your BSP -> Board Support Package Settings).

Click Overview -> Drivers -> CPU -> Extra Compiler Flags.
In the Extra Compiler Flags, you can add the options required.  

For example add -O0 to turn off optimization.  

This option will overwrite the -O2 default setting.
