Tells the compiler to create a precompiled header file.

Syntax

Linux and macOS:
-pch-create
filename
Windows:
None
Arguments
filename
Is the name for the precompiled header file. A space must appear before the file name. It can include a path.
Default
OFF
The compiler does not create or use precompiled headers unless you tell it to do so.
Description
This option tells the compiler to create a precompiled header (PCH) file. It is supported only for single source file compilations.
Note that the .pchi extension is not automatically appended to the file name.
This option cannot be used in the same compilation as the
-pch-use
option.
On Windows* systems, option
-pch-create
is equivalent to the
/Yc
option.
Alternate Options
Linux and
macOS*
: None
Windows:
/Yc
Consider the following command line:
icpc -pch-create /pch/foo.pchi foo.cpp
This creates the precompiled header file "/pch/foo.pchi".
