The Microsoft Browse Information Maintenance Utility (BSCMAKE.EXE) builds a browse information file (.bsc) from .sbr files created during compilation. You view a browse information file in the Object Browser. For information about the Object Browser, see Navigating in the Object Browser.
When you build your program, you can create a browse information file for your program automatically, using BSCMAKE to build the file. You do not need to know how to run BSCMAKE if you create your browse information file in the Visual C++ development environment. However, you may want to read this topic to understand the choices available.
If you build your program outside of the development environment, you can still create a custom .bsc that you can examine in the environment. Run BSCMAKE on the .sbr files that you created during compilation.
