/MERGE (Combine Sections)


The /MERGE option combines the first section (from) with the second section (to), naming the resulting section to. For example, /merge:.rdata=.text.

If the second section does not exist, LINK renames the section from as to.

The /MERGE option is useful for creating VxDs and overriding the compiler-generated section names.
