Q32000: Incremental Linking
Article: Q32000 Product(s): See article Version(s): 3.x 5.01.20 5.01.21 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 15-JUL-1988 The following is a description of the incremental-linking process. Your file is built from a set of .OBJ files. Each .OBJ file is produced by the compiler or assembler from a source file. If a set of .OBJ files is large, then linking time can be long. If you change only one source file (i.e., in your set of .OBJ files you have one new .OBJ file), you can link all .OBJs one more time, or patch your .EXE file with the new .OBJ file. This patching is called incremental linking. Incremental linking only is supported for OS/2 and Windows programs.
