ML Command-Line Reference
Visual Studio .NET 2003
Assembles and links one or more assembly-language source files. The command-line options are case sensitive.
ML [[options]] filename [[ [[options]] filename]] ... [[/link linkoptions]]
- The options listed in the following table.
Option Action /AT Enables tiny-memory-model support. Enables error messages for code constructs that violate the requirements for .com format files. Note that this is not equivalent to the .MODEL TINY directive. /Bl filename Selects an alternate linker. /c Assembles only. Does not link. /coff Generates common object file format (COFF) type of object module. Generally required for Win32 assembly language development. /Cp Preserves case of all user identifiers. /Cu Maps all identifiers to upper case (default). /Cx Preserves case in public and extern symbols. /Dsymbol[[=value]] Defines a text macro with the given name. If value is missing, it is blank. Multiple tokens separated by spaces must be enclosed in quotation marks. /EP Generates a preprocessed source listing (sent to STDOUT). See /Sf. /Fhexnum Sets stack size to hexnum bytes (this is the same as /link /STACK:number). The value must be expressed in hexadecimal notation. There must be a space between /F and hexnum. /Fefilename Names the executable file. /Fl[[filename]] Generates an assembled code listing. See /Sf. /Fm[[filename]] Creates a linker map file. /Fofilename Names an object file. /FPi Generates emulator fix-ups for floating-point arithmetic (mixed language only). /Fr[[filename]] Generates a source browser .sbr file. /FR[[filename]] Generates an extended form of a source browser .sbr file. /Gc Specifies use of FORTRAN- or Pascal-style function calling and naming conventions. Same as OPTION LANGUAGE:PASCAL. /Gd Specifies use of C-style function calling and naming conventions. Same as OPTION LANGUAGE:C. /H number Restricts external names to number significant characters. The default is 31 characters. /help Calls QuickHelp for help on ML. /I pathname Sets path for include file. A maximum of 10 /I options is allowed. /nologo Suppresses messages for successful assembly. /omf Generates object module file format (OMF) type of object module. /Sa Turns on listing of all available information. /safeseh Marks the object as either containing no exception handlers or containing exception handlers that are all declared with .SAFESEH. /Sc Adds instruction timings to listing file. /Sf Adds first-pass listing to listing file. /Sg Turns on listing of assembly-generated code. /Sl width Sets the line width of source listing in characters per line. Range is 60 to 255 or 0. Default is 0. Same as PAGE width. /Sn Turns off symbol table when producing a listing. /Sp length Sets the page length of source listing in lines per page. Range is 10 to 255 or 0. Default is 0. Same as PAGE length. /Ss text Specifies text for source listing. Same as SUBTITLE text. /St text Specifies title for source listing. Same as TITLE text. /Sx Turns on false conditionals in listing. /Ta filename Assembles source file whose name does not end with the .asm extension. /w Same as /W0. /Wlevel Sets the warning level, where level = 0, 1, 2, or 3. /WX Returns an error code if warnings are generated. /Zd Generates line-number information in object file. /Zf Makes all symbols public. /Zi Generates CodeView information in object file. /Zm Enables M510 option for maximum compatibility with MASM 5.1. /Zp[[alignment]] Packs structures on the specified byte boundary. The alignment can be 1, 2, or 4. /Zs Performs a syntax check only. /? Displays a summary of ML command-line syntax.
