The metadata emitter interface.


The file name for which the debugging symbols are written. Some writers require a file name, while others do not. If a file name is specified for a writer that does not use file names, this parameter is ignored.


true indicates that this is a full rebuild; false indicates an incremental compilation.

Initialize also sets the output file name where the debugging symbols are written. This method can be called only once and must be called before any other writer methods are called.
