/MAP (Generate Mapfile)
This option tells the linker to create a mapfile.
|Command Line||Project Settings||Description|
|/MAP||Generate Mapfile||The linker names the mapfile with the base name of the program and the extension .MAP.|
|/MAP:filename||Mapfile Name||This option overrides the default name for a mapfile.|
A mapfile is a text file that contains the following information about the program being linked:
The module name, which is the base name of the file
The timestamp from the program file header (not from the file system)
A list of groups in the program, with each group’s start address (as section:offset), length, group name, and class
A list of public symbols, with each address (as section:offset), symbol name, flat address, and .OBJ file where the symbol is defined
- The entry point (as section:offset)
To find this option in the development environment, click Settings on the Project menu. Then click the Link tab, and click Debug in the Category box.
The /MAPINFO option specifies additional information to be included in the map file.
