VCCLCompilerTool.WholeProgramOptimization Property 

Gets or sets a value indicating whether to enable cross-module optimizations by delaying code generation to link time. WholeProgramOptimization exposes the functionality of the compiler's /GL option.

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine (in microsoft.visualstudio.vcprojectengine.dll)

Property WholeProgramOptimization As Boolean
Dim instance As VCCLCompilerTool
Dim value As Boolean

value = instance.WholeProgramOptimization

instance.WholeProgramOptimization = value
/** @property */
boolean get_WholeProgramOptimization ()

/** @property */
void set_WholeProgramOptimization (/** @attribute InAttribute() */ boolean wholeProgOp)

function get WholeProgramOptimization () : boolean

function set WholeProgramOptimization (wholeProgOp : boolean)

Property Value

true if cross-module optimizations are enabled; otherwise, false.

It is better to set the VCCLCompilerTool object's WholeProgramOptimization property rather than to set the compiler property of the same name and the linker's LinkTimeCodeGeneration property.

The compiler's version of this property and the linker's LinkTimeCodeGeneration property are not available via the property pages.
