Title: Difference /Q and /QU
Post by: Opresion on June 11, 2008, 07:02:55 AM
I do not remember when but I saw a post talking about the difference betwen /Q and /QU when they are used with the Linker.

I can not find it because the searcher of this page ignores the slash. Who remembers where is it? or who can explain to me the meanings of /QU?

According to my manual, when used for the Linker, /Q is the same as /QUICKLIB. This option tells the linker to combine the object files you specify into a Quick library.

The manual does not specify any /QU option. I suspect that /QU would be the same as /Q, since they are both abbreviations of /QUICKLIB.

Good luck, and regards .... Moneo

The only reference to /QU in the QuickBasic Knowledge Base I could find was this one:

I think the forum post you're looking for was posted under the old forum, still viewable here:

That's the answer; previously I wasn't paying enough attention; the difference it's that when one is making a Quickbasic library and displays an 'Unresolved External' message, one can use the /QU to ignore the problem and to finish the library.

Thank you very much for the solution.
