Caution Needed in Specifying a Compiler

The environment variable ELI_CC can be used to specify the C compiler that should be used to compile user-provided and Eli-generated code. Specification of a C compiler in this manner is considered to be "permanent", so Eli assumes that the value of ELI_CC will remain unchanged over the life of a cache. If you change the value of ELI_CC, you should restart Eli with the eli -r command to reset the cache. Otherwise, Eli will mix object code produced by the two compilers with unpredictable results.

You can also specify the C compiler to be used by means of the +cc parameter. That specification holds only for the request containing it. Eli will guarantee that all of the object code needed to satisfy that request was produced by the specified compiler. Successive requests specifying different compilers will be handled correctly.
