ipo-c, Qipo-c

Tells the compiler to optimize across multiple files and generate a single object file.

Syntax

Linux and macOS:
-ipo-c
Windows:
/Qipo-c
Arguments
None
Default
OFF
The compiler does not generate a multifile object file.
Description
This option tells the compiler to optimize across multiple files and generate a single object file (named ipo_out.o on Linux* and
macOS*
systems; ipo_out.obj on Windows* systems).
It performs the same optimizations as the
[Q]ipo
option, but compilation stops before the final link stage, leaving an optimized object file that can be used in further link steps.
Alternate Options
None
