Tells the compiler to save the compilation options in the executable file.

Syntax

Arguments
None
Default
OFF
The compiler version number is saved in the object file.
Description
This option tells the compiler to save the compilation options in the executable file. The information is embedded as a string in each object file or assembly output.
When you specify this option, the size of the executable on disk is increased slightly. When you link the object files into an executable file, the linker places each of the information strings into the header of the executable. It is then possible to use a tool, such as a strings utility, to determine what options were used to build the executable file.
