Macros and NMAKE

 

The new home for Visual Studio documentation is Visual Studio 2017 Documentation on docs.microsoft.com.

The latest version of this topic can be found at Macros and NMAKE.

Macros replace a particular string in the makefile with another string. Using macros, you can:

  • Create a makefile that can build different projects.

  • Specify options for commands.

  • Set environment variables.

You can define your own macros or use NMAKE's predefined macros.
