Q68367: PWB Build Switch Reference Available as an Application Note
Article: Q68367 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 1.10 | 1.00 1.10 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | appnote softlib SW0330 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 29-JAN-1991 The "PWB Build Switch Reference" contains detailed descriptions and examples for customizing PWB build switches. The Programmer's WorkBench (PWB) can build various types of projects based on the information contained in "build switches." These build switches are interpreted by PWB in order to create a makefile for a project. The switches are normally set for you by PWB for common types of projects, but you may define your own build switches to handle an advanced project where you require more control over the build process. For example, customized build switches will allow you to utilize different languages, to incorporate other tools into a project, or to build new kinds of targets. Although build switch customization is documented in the PWB online help, the information is somewhat limited. Therefore, an application note was created to cover the customization process in detail. The title of this application note is "PWB Build Switch Reference" and it can be obtained by calling Microsoft Product Support Services at (206) 637-7096. The "PWB Build Switch Reference" can also be found in the Software/ Data Library (as file SW0330.ARC) by searching on the keyword SW0330, the Q number of this article, or S12875. SW0330 was archived using the PKware file-compression utility. Note that the application note found in the Software/Data Library is an ordinary text file, which lacks the typefaces and formatting of the printed version that is available by calling Microsoft Product Support Services. Because the printed application note is clearer and easier to follow, it is highly recommended that you call for the printed version, and that you use the downloaded version only as an interim copy. Also note that you normally DO NOT need to modify build switches just to customize the compile and link operations -- this can generally be done by selecting commands from the Options menu. By selecting options from the Compile or LINK Options dialog boxes, the correct build switches are automatically modified to contain the desired information.
