How to see which flags -march=native will activate?

I'm compiling my C++ app using GCC 4.3. Instead of manually selecting the optimization flags I'm using -march=native, which in theory should add all optimization flags applicable to the hardware I'm compiling on. But how can I check which flags is it actually using?


  • You can use the -Q --help=target options:

    gcc -march=native -Q --help=target ...

    The -v option may also be of use.

    You can see the documentation on the --help option here.
