Q32242: The extmake Compile Switch Is Case Sensitive
Article: Q32242 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 | 1.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | buglist1.00 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 1-MAY-1989 The following extmake entry will be ignored, causing the default command line to be used: extmake:C cl /c /Zi /Od %s Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Version 1.00. We are researching this problem and will post new information as it becomes available. Although there is no case sensitivity for the extmake switch name, the extension specified ("C" in this example) must be in lowercase. If the extension is not in lowercase, the help screen will show a separate entry for that extension, as follows: C cl /c /Zi /Od %s c cl /c /Zep /D LINT_ARGS %s The second command line will be used when compiling a C program.
