Description
This option causes the results of diagnostic analysis to be output to a file. The file is placed in the current working directory.
You can include a file extension in
filename
. For example, if
file.txt
is specified, the name of the output file is
file.txt
. If you do not provide a file extension, the name of the file is
filename.diag
.
If
filename
is not specified, the name of the file is
name-of-the-first-source-file.diag
. This is also the name of the file if the name specified for file conflicts with a source file name provided in the command line.
If you specify the
[Q]diag-file
option and you also specify the
[Q]diag-file-append
option, the last option specified on the command line takes precedence.
