Command Table Compiler Command Line Flags

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Successful compilation of a single Command Table Configuration (.Ctc) Files results in a binary resource file for a VSPackage that Visual Studio merges with other VSPackage contributed resources to give the shell its merged appearance. The compiler accepts some command line parameters.

Command Line Parameters

To view basic command table compiler help at a DOS prompt, type:

ctc

or

ctc /?

or

ctc -?

This returns:

Microsoft (R) Shell Command Table Compiler Version 2.10.1311
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1997 - 2000. All rights reserved.

Syntax: ctc <infile> [<outfile>] [-C<cpp-command>] [-D<preprocessor-define>]* [-I<include-path>]*

The characters - (dash) and / (forward slash) are both accepted notation for indicating command line parameters.

These are the acceptable flags and what they mean:

Flag (delineated by / or -) Description

C

Override the default preprocessor command, for instance -Ccl will invoke “cl” (cl.exe) as the preprocessor if cl.exe is locatable in the executable path.

D

Indicates preprocessor definitions.

I

Indicates preprocessor includes.

L####

Indicates the code page required to decode the text into Unicode. #### is the number of the code page. This flag is new to Visual Studio 2005.
