Title: #pragma lib and #pragma comment(lib )
Post by: Anonymous on May 11, 2005, 07:01:31 pm
Hi Pelle,
Can you give a brief description of what happens with the #pragma lib preprocessor directives?  

Specifically where are the library names stored and how does the linker get hold of them?

They are stored as linker options in an object file section called ".drectve" - something like "-defaultlib:mylib". (Use PODUMP on an object file).

Thanks.  That's what I expected, but wasn't sure.
