/Yc - Create Precompiled Header (Windows CE 5.0)
This option instructs the compiler to create a precompiled header (.pch) file that represents the state of compilation at a certain point. No space is allowed between /Yc and filename.
The following list describes how to use /Yc with or without a file name.
- Using /Yc with a File Name
If you specify a file name with the /Yc option, the compiler compiles all code up to and including the specified file for subsequent use with the /Yu - Use Precompiled Header option.
The precompiled code is saved in a file with a name created from the base name of the file specified with the /Yc option and a .pch extension.
You can also use the /Fp - Specify Precompiled Header option to specify a name for the resulting precompiled header file.
If the options /Ycfilename and /Yufilename occur on the same command line and both reference, or imply, the same filename, /Ycfilename takes precedence. This characteristic simplifies the writing of makefiles.
- Using /Yc Without a File Name
If you specify the /Yc option with no file name, the resulting precompiled header saves the compilation state at the end of the base source file, or, if the base file contains a hdrstop pragma, at the place where the hdrstop pragma occurs.
The resulting .pch file has the same base name as your base source file unless you specify a different file name using the hdrstop pragma.
