Controls the optimizations that LINK performs during a build.
Optimizations generally decrease the image size and increase the program speed at a cost of increased link time.
You can use the /VERBOSE option to see the functions removed by /OPT:REF and the functions that are folded by /OPT:ICF.
To set this linker option in the Visual Studio development environment
Open the project's Property Pages dialog box. For details, see Setting Visual C++ Project Properties.
