<cvar name="no_import_lib">
<summary>
<para>
When set to non-zero,
suppresses creation of a corresponding Windows static import lib by the
<literal>SharedLibrary</literal>
builder when used with
MinGW, Microsoft Visual Studio or Metrowerks.
This also suppresses creation
of an export (.exp) file
when using Microsoft Visual Studio.
</para>
</summary>
</cvar>

<cvar name="PDB">
<summary>
<para>
The Microsoft Visual C++ PDB file that will store debugging information for
object files, shared libraries, and programs. This variable is ignored by
tools other than Microsoft Visual C++.
When this variable is
defined SCons will add options to the compiler and linker command line to
cause them to generate external debugging information, and will also set up the
dependencies for the PDB file.
Example:
</para>

<example_commands>
env['PDB'] = 'hello.pdb'
</example_commands>

<para>
The Visual C++ compiler switch that SCons uses by default
to generate PDB information is <option>/Z7</option>.
This works correctly with parallel (<option>-j</option>) builds
because it embeds the debug information in the intermediate object files,
as opposed to sharing a single PDB file between multiple object files.
This is also the only way to get debug information
embedded into a static library.
Using the <option>/Zi</option> instead may yield improved
link-time performance,
although parallel builds will no longer work.
You can generate PDB files with the <option>/Zi</option>
switch by overriding the default &cv-link-CCPDBFLAGS; variable;
see the entry for that variable for specific examples.
</para>
</summary>
</cvar>

<cvar name="WINDOWS_EMBED_MANIFEST">
<summary>
<para>
Set this variable to True or 1 to embed the compiler-generated manifest
(normally <literal>${TARGET}.manifest</literal>)
into all Windows exes and DLLs built with this environment,
as a resource during their link step.
This is done using &cv-link-MT; and &cv-link-MTEXECOM; and &cv-link-MTSHLIBCOM;.
</para>
</summary>
</cvar>

<cvar name="MT">
<summary>
<para>

<cvar name="REGSVRCOM">
<summary>

<cvar name="REGSVRCOMSTR">
<summary>
<para>
The string displayed when registering a newly-built DLL file.
If this is not set, then &cv-link-REGSVRCOM; (the command line) is displayed.
</para>
</summary>
</cvar>

<cvar name="REGSVRFLAGS">
<summary>
<para>
Flags passed to the DLL registration program
on Windows systems when a newly-built DLL library is registered.
By default,
this includes the <option>/s</option>
that prevents dialog boxes from popping up

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
