Q41583: LINK Options Can Be Specified in AUTOEXEC.BAT with SET LINK=
Article: Q41583 Product(s): See article Version(s): 2.00 2.01 3.00 4.00 4.00b 4.50 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | B_BasicCom SR# S890213-93 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 14-DEC-1989 LINK options can be set in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file (or in the MS-DOS command line) as an environment variable with the statement "SET LINK=options". The following is an example SET LINK=/NOE /NOI /E where /NOE is NOEXTDICTIONARY, /NOI is NOIGNORECASE, /E is EXEPACK. This behavior can cause some unexpected errors to occur because you might forget what LINK switches are SET in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file. If the /E [XEPACK] switch is SET within your AUTOEXEC.BAT FILE and you attempt to create a Quick library with the /Q [UICKLIB] switch, the following linker error is generated: L1003 /QUICKLIB, /EXEPACK incompatible To make Quick libraries with /E [XEPACK] set as a LINK option, use /NOP [ACKCODE] to turn /E [XEPACK] off. This information applies to Microsoft QuickBASIC Versions 2.00, 2.01, 3.00, 4.00, 4.00b, and 4.50, Microsoft BASIC Compiler Versions 6.00 and 6.00b, and Microsoft BASIC PDS Version 7.00.
