Programming with ATL and C Run-Time Code

This section discusses the benefits of using the C Run-Time Library (CRT) with either static or dynamic linking, or alternatively using the _ATL_MIN_CRT macro to reduce your dependency on CRT code.

In This Section

Benefits and Tradeoffs of Using _ATL_MIN_CRT
Summarizes the benefits and tradeoffs involved in linking statically to the CRT, linking dynamically, or avoiding the CRT DLL altogether.
Linking to the CRT in Your ATL Project
Discusses the project settings and linker options for linking to the CRT; also provides details on how linking to the CRT affects your program image.
Using _ATL_MIN_CRT in Your ATL Project
Discusses the project settings for using _ATL_MIN_CRT and how this affects your code.
Recognizing Functions that Rely on CRT Startup Code
Lists functions, compiler options, and libraries that require the CRT startup code.
Identifying CRT Startup Code Dependencies by Building
Shows how to identify your CRT dependencies by using various build options and examining the output.
Exception Handling and _ATL_MIN_CRT
Describes how using _ATL_MIN_CRT affects exception handling in ATL projects.
