3cce2fd257cac5cf92b6d3fc6908a02df1446165.DOC Project: Printed: 10/27/92 14:16 A10/P10 201 CHAPTER 1 This chapter describes the Microsoft Segmented-Executable Linker (LINK) version 5.31. LINK combines compiled or assembled object files into an executable file. This chapter explains LINK’s input syntax and fields and tells how to use options to control LINK. LINK is distributed in the form of LINK.EXE for MS-DOS. LINK is DOS- extended and uses extended memory if available. When you link for debugging using the /CO option, LINK calls the CVPACK utility. CVPACK version 4.00 must be available on the path. For more information, see “CVPACK” on page 631. This version of LINK does not support the Microsoft Incremental Linker (ILINK). The LINK options for incremental linking are no longer supported. If /INCR, /PADC, or /PADD is specified, LINK issues a warning and ignores the option. New Features This version of LINK has several new or changed features. This section summarizes changes in options. Changes in module-definition statements are discussed in Chapter 14. The following options are new or changed in LINK versions 5.30 and later. For more information about each option, see “LINK Options,” page 471. /DOSS[[EG]] The minimum unique abbreviation for /DOSSEG option has changed from /DO to /DOSS. /DY[[NAMIC]][[ : number ]] The new /DYNAMIC option lets you change the limit of interoverlay calls in an overlaid MS-DOS program. /INC[[REMENTAL]] The /INCR option is no longer supported.

Environment and Tools /INF[[ORMATION]] The /INFO option gives more detailed output. One new use is to get the number of interoverlay calls needed to specify with the /DYNAMIC option. /M[[AP]][[ : maptype ]] The /MAP option has been enhanced. You can get more or less detail in the map file by specifying an optional qualifier. /NOPACKC[[ODE]] The minimum unique abbreviation for /NOPACKC has changed from /NOP to /NOPACKC to distinguish it from the new /NOPACKF option. /NOPACKF[[UNCTIONS]] The new /NOPACKF option keeps unreferenced packaged functions. /OL[[DOVERLAY]] The new /OLDOVERLAY option links an overlaid MS-DOS program using the Static Overlay Manager instead of the MOVE library. This option may not be supported in future versions of LINK. /ON[[ERROR]] : N[[OEXE]] The /ONERROR:NOEXE option prevents LINK from creating the program output if an error occurs. /OV[[ERLAYINTERRUPT]] The minimum unique abbreviation for this option has changed from /O to /OV, to distinguish it from the new /OLDOVERLAY option. /PACKF[[UNCTIONS]] The new /PACKF option removes unreferenced packaged functions. /PADC[[ODE]] The /PADC option is no longer supported. /PADD[[ATA]] The /PADD option is no longer supported.
