Description
Places the text string specified into the object file (.obj) being generated by the compiler.
This option places the text string specified into the object file (.obj) being generated by the compiler. The string also gets propagated into the executable file.
For example, this option is useful if you want to place the version number or copyright information into the object and executable.
If the string contains a space or tab, the string must be enclosed by double quotation marks ("). A backslash (\) must precede any double quotation marks contained within the string.
